Might or might not be the solution you're looking for.  But, it might lead others to a more workable solution for you.

Once upon a time, I heard of custom versions of Windows 95 and 98 where instead of launching the Explorer "shell", it launched Winamp or some other program as the shell (because it didn't need the features and desktop provided by Explorer).
I don't know if this is an option for the machines you're using because it would effectively remove a lot of the expected functionality that others might want and expect to be provided by XP.

Any way you look at it the users will not get the "expected functionality" unless you are providing Windows to them.  He apparently doesn't want Windows running, and Linux is not an interface to Windows programs, so i can't see any reason to use embedded in this case (unless maybe there's some hardware that DSL is not supporting?).

you should have a look for the coLinux, which is a special Linux kernel that can be loaded as a windows xp service, and than boots a Linux system under Windows XP nativly.

The only problem is, how to get the access to the coLinux system without to enter the Windows system. Windows XP and coLinux communicates via TCP/IP and you need a client (e.G. VNC, NXclient) under Windows XP to display the Linux X.

On the other hand, you can install coLinux as service of Windows XP and export the Linux X to a Windows X-Server, which is running as a service also. This could solve your problem, but I don't tested this.
