Ah, that's true.  Forgot about that.  The easiest way, I think, to do
this is to run system-config-packages ("Add/Remove Programs" if you're
in KDE or GNOME), and look for all the K12LTSP and LTSP stuff.  Add
those and install as normal.  You *might* have to run ltspadmin after
the installation, from the terminal window, as root (of course) to set
it up for your specific IP subnets.
