I am not exactly sure what you are looking for here, do you want automatic
load balancing, a drop down to choose your server, or different subnets with
dedicated LTSP servers that simply auth and nfs mount to a main LDAP server
(auth and NFS mount to a main LDAP server for all three cases).

The answer from me is yes, but I don't know where.  I have seen users post
with info on how to load balance with round robin DNS, and I have seen users
post with info on adding a drop down menu to choose your server.  As far as
the third option the solution is most likely obvious.

As far as a howto on authenticating multiple servers to a central LDAP and
NFS, I am sure David will provide that in a heartbeat :-)
