Linux as an Application Server for GRASS

I am considering proposing to a local college that they use GRASS to set up
a GIS program.

The idea is to use Linux as an application server with GRASS installed, but
for the students, through Virtual Network Computing (VNC) actually use the
GRASS on Windows 95/98 boxes.

Does anyone have any experience with this; particularly with respect to
demands upon network performance and upon the Linux box, but also with
respect to any other topics as well.

I would appreciate any advice, warnings, or comments.
