I have two SME sites running LTSP loaded onto the server as well 10 
windows xp clients and 6 ltsp clients boot from SME

as per here  SME7.3 + Gnome 2.16 + LTSP 4.2 
<http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=35111.0>  have added 
openoffice and a few other apps.

there is a "server-panel" to manage the boot images 

my server is a AMD 4600+ x2 with 4G ram  the thin clients load in blink 
of eye and are very rsponsive!

best off both worlds for ltsp + domain controller + lamp  etc
