Would this be a viable option for clients with 1-2 servers and around 20-40 end users, some of which work remotely.

Particularity I have been looking at red hat with KVM, but any distro will do.

Are there any guides out there for setting up and configuring KVM for thin clients?

generally speaking, there is no reason why any station (thin or otherwise) shouldn't be able to connect to a VM running on a KVM hypervisor. Having said that, what do you have on those thin clients? windowsCE? some form of Linux?
