That sounds fully compliant with the capability of the x2gothinclient  
package. However, PXE is a LAN boot protocol...

Morty has criticized me for giving the urgent recommendation of  
separating X2go Server and PXE server. I still favorize such a  
solution but I will change that part in the wiki as it might repell  
people from trying the X2go TCE. I simply haven't had the time for it,  

My ideal setup for X2go TCE is: >=1 X2go Server, 1 PXE Server, n X2go  
Thin Clients --- all of them in the same LAN.

I am not sure what you mean by this... If you explained this a bit  
more in detail I might give some comments on your question. (but:  
subscribe to the list first and use the subscription mail address for  
posting afterwards...).
