I'm trying to serve two legacy Windows Applications (one of them are 16bits) in a Linux LTSP University Lab. We never found a real solution for this problem.
But today this is getting insane; at a point of running a modern version of Windows in a localdisk; with XP-Mode just to run those applications.
So I'm looking for ideas/help on how to run it. Wine is not an option; since one of the programs crashes in the save dialog (perhaps because the save dialog is the one from Windows 3.x)
If someone would like to suggest running some virtualization technology, like Xen or Virtualbox we need to embed this in the boot image; since the LTSP Server is based on the "fat clients" style. And, the VM's must be non-persistence and most restrictive possible, since we don't want our alumni installing apps, surving the web, etc on this Windows solution.
Thanks for any help and sorry english mistakes.
