That should be possible, if the ASA also supports NFSv3 or NFSv4  
exports for the thin client chroot environment.

The thin client boots like this:

  o DHCP request by thin client, waiting for TFTP server and filename
  o the TFTP boot env is provided by syslinux, this basically loads the
    linux kernel (and initrd)
  o then the kernel will mount the root filesystem via NFSv3 (read-only)
  o now the system continues booting from the NFSv3 root filesystem
