If you have one machine that could reasonably act as a server, you could 
load k12ltsp (a CentOS based distribution that adds the ability to 
network-boot thin clients and some educational programs) on it and be 
done.  In any case you might find the information here useful:
http://k12ltsp.org/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page along with their mail list.
