skoll, gnoppix, knoppix, and virtually any distribution is now self-bootable.  The code to do this is easily implemented.

These guys' deal is it's a live-CD.  I forget, is there a SkoleLinux
variant that's bootable like that?

Although Skolelinux is listed on a site about livecds[1], I can't find one.

(Honestly, I'm not sold on the idea of a live-CD for doing this, and think
thin clients might be better... but, it may also depend on the situation...
namely, the speed (or existence!) of the school's internal network.)
