One of the recent changes to drbl at least in it's clonezilla-server role is 
adding the ability to PXE-boot an image of the clonezilla-live iso.  The 
advantage is that you can then use the more up to date ubuntu based image for 
better hardware support on the client even if the server runs something else.

I don't know if it is possible to generalize that to boot any live iso image you 
want, but that seems like it might be a good approach for "thick" clients, 
especially if you can get a client set up to do ldap authentication and 
nfs-mount the home directory.
