I am assuming you wish to run some form of Windows on the clients.
I believe that this has been done but it is hardly practical. There are more than a few serious issues involved. I have no idea how it would be done.

Go to the Microsoft Technet homepage and search for Thin Clients.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

lejanana your diskless workstations have to support booting to windows terminal server which means they need a base Windows OS to start with. Unless these units support this you will need to replace them

Maybe you can use a windows emulator on the workstations to access the windows server.
