We are in the process of rolling out VMWare Desktops to our users that have older PC's that would of need to be replaced if we did not get VMWare.  What steps have you taken to setup a users older PC to act as a VMWare thin client so that when they boot up it goes right to the VMWare login as quickly as possible?  If possible the user does not see the Windows 2000 or XP desktop so they are not distracted and miss the VMWare login box.  Thanks!

This thread at VMware's forum speaks briefly about it: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/170070;jsessionid=7CED8C073742E8B5C9A1A2A3AE50C2FF?tstart=0

And here are a few possible options. Thinstation is free, the others aren't, but should have demo versions you can try.
