Ubuntu version to convert XP clients to thin clients

Is there a version of Ubuntu that is preconfigured to have only access to remote desktop so that I can easily convert Windows XP pcs to thin clients connecting to a Windows 2008R2 terminal server?  These PCs only have CD drives.  What I would like to see is something similar to HP's Linux thin client operating system where you just boot to a desktop and can easily configure it to be able to click on a shortcut to connect to the terminal server.  Simple and clean.  Does anything free exist?

Does the OS really need to be Ubuntu? If not, I'd suggest you take a look at "Thinstation". According to the Distrowatch site it is based on "Crux", but in my point of view the distro a thin client is based on should be irrelevant.

Have to checked the Ubuntu website for information, "ThinClients"

Thinstation seemed like the best solution at this time.  This will allow me to repurpose a number of PCs to become thin clients for a Windows 2008R2 terminal server.  They previously had been XP stations just using remote desktop and I wanted a more secure local OS on the PC.  Thanks.
