Looking for a Linux distro for a very specific task
Task in question is to run a thin client to connect to Windows Server 2003. Now, the server part has to be Windows, because all clients need is to run Microsoft Office.
Now, network boot is out of the question, because clients aren't on a LAN with the server - they connect via ADSL - so a bit of local storage is required. Hard drives are expensive an unreliable, so I've been thinking of using 128MB or 256MB USB flash drives to boot from.
The specific requirement is to boot from a USB flash drive, connect through ADSL using a network modem to a Windows server, and open an RDP client window. Nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else.
Is there a ready-made distribution that can do that, or will I have to do it myself, or, more likely hire someone more knowledgeable about it, as my Linux knowledge is quite limited - not enough time left over from troubleshooting Windows machines to learn much...
