That is how we do it, LTSP NFS mounts the shares that contains the
user's files and authenticates over LDAP. I wrote up instructions in
the wiki on doing this:

That should be enough to get you started. If you have any questions,
let me know.

For added fun you can set any XP machines to also authenticate to the
OS X server. Once that's in place you can modify it so the users
Documents folder shows up as My Documents on the XP machine. Then you
users can use any OS X/Linux/XP desktop and have access to their
documents automatically!
