How do I Turn and Older PC into a Thin Client?

What I want to do is take some older Pentium 1 & 2 PC and make them capable to connecting to a Micrsoft Terminal Server. Idealy I want to boot some soft of CD, disk, or fail that a PXE (I'm not too familiar with PXE)? The one thing I can't have is anything that runs inside the current OS, it must be standalone. I'd just like some suggestions on the best and if possible free solution out there.

I use Tftpd32.  Its Free.  I just installed it on my Server and you can set your clients to network boot or use a boot disk.  It Connects me fine to my 2000 Terminal Server
