I need a very simple, configurable thinclient solution, that allows you to configure and and build a bootable image so that when it boots, it automatically RDPs to the target machine and shows a login prompt.

basically exactly like wtware, except open source and free.

Ive looked into several linux solutions, but most of them have extra applications that run locally, and you manually have open the RDP prompt to connect to the remote machine. I do not need this extra bling.. it should be operating so the user doesn't no its not a normal computer. (to the extent that this can be done)

I use for the same purpose thinstation
you have to install and after you could customize via simple files on boot server
the behaviour of booting diskless
specifying rdesktop with user etc ...
