I've done it with both EL4 and EL5.  Matter of fact, I've had x86, PPC, 
and even UltraSPARC boxes running as thin clients...from the same 
K12LTSP server...simultaneously.  :-)

Basically, I had to build a custom /etc/dhcpd.conf for it and copy 
/opt/ltsp/ppc and /opt/ltsp/sparc over.  That, and make an /etc/hosts 
file that would accommodate it.  But it really was not very hard.
