Hi
I'd like if users could boot straight into a terminal server session. Skip the whole clicking on the remote connection icon procedure, never show the desktop of the pc they are on.
Is this possible?
Thanks

Yes this is. The best approach is to actually use a replacement OS that can be on a CD or over PXE boot. One great solution is the 2X ThinClient Server (http://www.2x.com). Their PXES Edition is actually free and does exactly what you are looking for.

Hmm, never thought of doing it that way.
On the other hands, it looks like I'd to wipe the pc. And these pc may move to our other offices, where there is not a thin client. Is there a way that lets me keep windows on the pc?
Thanks again.

This method does allow you to keep Windows. All you have to do is to burn the ISO for the client side to a CD and boot the machine using the CD. This will preserve all you have on the HD.
