Thin clients do not usually have an operating system installed.

In normal setups, thin clients use a pxe boot or a small program
to connect to the server.

Yes but is it possible to give the choice at boot :
1- to use the computer using VectorLinux installed on the computer
or
2- Boot as a thin-client

Huh

The reason is that at our school, we have low ram computers, some students can use Vector Linux installed and it will be OK for the work thay have to do but some others must have  better RAM (3D graphics, Video editing, etc..) and a thin-client would be better.

Using init4 which is a graphical login you
should be able to chose remote login.

Setup Ubuntu as an xdmcp server and then
Vector can login as a thin client.

I have customers that I setup that way to isolate the work machines
from direct connection to the internet.
