the default is still "LTSP" Thin Clients but this is the
"MueKow" - Version of LTSP which needs more CPU,RAM and more time to boot.
AFAIK Debian-Edu and Edubuntu People are working on it to make it more thinner

for 486 computers with 32 MB
I recommend LTSP Version 4.1 or 3.0 
which is still avalible at www.ltsp.org
