That would work, putting the boot parts and minimal os on a usb stick then
connecting  to ltsp for users but that stops  being ltsp alltogether. Ltsp
just isnt wireless able for a simple reason no pxe in wireless cards, and i
doubt there will ever be. Anyway cabling allows for usable fast gigabit
clients and its not the end of the world to rely on cabling
