The LTSP packages already are packages that can be added to any
installation.  The new hardy method of modifying an existing ubuntu desktop
installation hides the fact the terminal server functions are provided by
only a handful of packages that can be installed in any *buntu flavour.
At a school I moved to edubuntu I used an ubuntu server installation that I
then installed the packages xorg-x11, ltsp-server, xfce4, firefox and
openoffice on.  ltsp-server pulled in dependencies of the daemons and tools
necessary for creating and booting a thin client environment.  This method
means each thin client uses less resources and I was able to mostly side
step the persistent process problem since none of the gnome applications
that cause the issue in the first place are installed.
