It should be pretty straightforward to run a virtual machine under xen, kvm, 
vmware, or virtualbox running DRBL per NIC (or perhaps VLAN) if you have a 
larger server.  Home directories could be nfs-shared from the host and mounted 
to both VMs and clients.

Or, maybe the DRBL mode that lets you boot the clients from a live-CD type image 
could be used.
