Sounds like you're making your LTSP server also function as your
Internet router for the entire site.  Nothing wrong with that,, and your
setup is correct, but just make sure you've got the proper iptables-fu
in place before you go live with it!  Last thing you want is for your
LTSP server to get nailed by some cracker.

And yep, your thick clients would use eth0 as the default gateway. 
IIRC, ip.forward and NAT are both turned on by default in K12LTSP.
