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
