I can't help with the config but I'm just wondering why you want to go this
route rather than setting up as a thin client terminal server?  This can be
done either with old hardware for the client machines or with dedicated thin
client appliances.  Generally easier to set up and use though it would
require more power (to supply the client machines) and maybe more expense
(if you're getting appliances).  However, X has been able to do this stuff
for years and years now.
