Hello Stefan

The main hurdle in that kind of setup would be connecting to the 
wireless network before you mount the nfs share. I don't know if thats 
even possible

What i have done instead, is to create a minimal system based on debian, 
pared it down to a minimal windowmanager, the Network Applet from gnome, 
and the x2go thin client. I think it was about 200 megabytes in size, 
and locally installed. I didn't do a lot of optimizing, though, and it 
could probably become way smaller. And since it was a squash-filesystem 
(basically a dd'ed live CD), it wouldnt save any settings from the 
previous boots
