LTSP questions/ Thin Client live CD/ XDM

Are there any Live CDs for LTSP thin clients? At the moment I'm using 'Thin Station' with XDM.

Is XDM (XDMCP) really LTSP?

Doesn't LTSP use ssh -X?

Are there Live CDs for 'fat' clients?

The Rom-a-matic CD for with all gPXE drivers
worked well for me.
XDM is not LTSP; LTSP is more flexible. They shouldn't be compared (apples to oranges). Xdmcp is a network-protocol. LTSP is a framework to build and maintain chroot environments
which are used by thin clients and other diskless Workstations as a remote, read-only root-filesystem.


cd, client, live, ltsp, xdm, xdmcp
