Hi Aaron
I've had a lot of success with the "newer" imacs booting into the 
k12ltsp by first making sure the ethernet drop has been properly vlaned 
to the k12ltsp server's vlan (I am crossing walls- the IP generated 
should be 192.168...) and then by just holding down the 'n' (mac network 
boot) key during booting. Lots of scrolling, but soon, your k12ltsp 
glorious welcome screen... I can't remember exactly, but seems like 
there are a couple of keys (non-alphanumeric) that type a different 
character...other than that, hog heaven!
Good luck
