yes...very easily.  takes not more than a few steps.  I use NFS for  
my ltsp servers...make sure to share your folders on os x using nfs.   
set up ltsp server to authenticate to ldap.  edit your fstab file to  
mount the nfs file system...by default, os x users have their nfs  
home folders mounted on /Network/Servers/NameOfYourServer.  Make sure  
you os x users have a login shell chosen for their user account.   
This can be found under 'workgroup manager'...this step is very  
important to check...I believe by default os x accounts are set up  
with no login shell chosen....MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ONE CHOSEN.  Reboot  
your ltsp server once authentication is set up, and login.  I'm going  
from memory right now, so if you want more detailed steps, respond to  
this and I'll write tomorrow from work.
