Looking at your hardware you are good on everything but RAM. In order to
get decent performance you will want to have about 512MB for the server
plus about 64-128MB per client.

Since you already have RedHat 5 loaded what you need now is to install
the rest of the pieces. An easy way is to get the K12LTSP5-EL DVD
(download the disk image and mount it using "mount -t iso9660 <path to
disk.iso> /mnt -o loop"). Now you need to go into the directory on the
mounted CD and find the huge list of RPMs. You will want to install
pretty much anything that has "ltsp" in the name. 

If you start by installing the k12ltsp repo file below into a
file /etc/yum.repos.d/k12ltsp.repo


and then run 
yum localinstall *ltsp*
The system will install everything with ltsp in the name and use the yum
process to grab any other dependencies it needs to make it happen.
