Actually, LTSP itself has no kernel, nor does LTSP itself care which 
kind of NIC you're using on your server.  LTSP is, like OpenOffice.org 
or Mozilla, an application that runs on top of an existing operating 
system, in this case, GNU/Linux.  It is the Linux kernel for which you 
would do this, because device drivers run in kernel, i. e. "Ring 0" mode.

You may wish to take a visit over to http://www.kernel.org/ to get a bit 
more information about what's being talked about here.  That's how I 
learned how to rebuild kernels back when I was still a Windows NT admin; 
it was actually quite helpful.  I would also suggest 
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html, which, while somewhat 
politically biased, does provide a good explanation, "in English," how 
kernels relate to the entire OS.  This might help clear up what is being 
suggested below.
