I do this with my house setup.  (I have LTSP running in the home).  1 of
my clients is a "dual boot" LTSP client or Windows 98 box.  The windows
98 box is so my kids can play their PC kids games.

I have a SAMBA share that holds all the CD-ROM isos.  The windows boxes
mount it as M: . Then they have a number of shortcuts on the desktop
that mount the ISO via DaemonTools.  If you need some help/configs just
email me.
