I agree.  Just make sure that your routers speak CIDR (with ciscos, this 
is now the default), and you're good to go.  What we used to call 
supernetting works fine w/ GNU/Linux and, therefore, LTSP.

I've also used subnets of 10. and 172.16 with success as well.  Note, 
though, that cisco wireless access points (not the Linksys models, I 
mean the actual Cisco-branded W.A.P.'s) use 10.0.0.x/24 by default.
