Why didn't you just install K12LTSP 5EL? That's CentOS 5 + LTSP 4.2 +  
everything ready to go.

There is something in LTSP called Local Device Access. It just worked  
out of the box on our K12LTSP setup. If you want to install this  
yourself there are instructions on the LTSP wiki: http://www.ltsp.org/twiki/bin/view/Ltsp/LTSP-42-LocalDev
