"Installing" really is that easy.  "running" is yet another problem. 
There's no built-in support for local apps in LTSP-5 yet.

You'll need to deal with how to make the users home directory available. 
  That's needed, so that the firefox prefs will be available to firefox.

You'll also need to setup ssh-server to allow you to actually execute 
something locally.

It's not rocket science.  Shouldn't be too hard.
