You could run Cygwin on the NT machines and use it to connect to the
K12LTSP server. This would require that the user boot into NT, and then
run Cygwin, and inside Cygwin run xwin with the correct query string.
Most of this could be scripted, I imagine, but it may still be too much
overhead. Still, this sounds like a lot more work than just making a
whack of boot floppies and handing them out at the beginning of class.
