The server will run Windows 2003/2008 Server Enterprise because of the amount of RAM you will need. The server will also have the tools needed to configure (ie terminal services and Citrix XenApp).
You thin clients must be able to support ICA or RDP protocols so if you are converting existing PCs then they will need a client tool to help you to use onboard features such as USB.

I would not recommend virtualising thin client servers but you can the Citrix DataStore.
I hope this helps.
