Did you try this

Install new software in chroot
  chroot /opt/ltsp/i386
  mount /proc
  yum install firefox

launch app as a local app
   /usr/bin/ltsp-localapps /usr/bin/firefox

If network apps don't work then you may need to setup nat in your
firewall on your external nic

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o eth0 -j MASQUERADE

You can also set this up with the gui program system-config-firewall
