so you're OS X server is currently hosting home directories?  This  
same OS X server is also an open directory/LDAP server?  You can  
either set up your ltsp server to authenticate to the LDAP server, or  
use generic logins and have the students connect to the server once  
logged in.  Give me some more specifics and I'll help you out.
