Yes, I got that.  What's happening is that there's an update to the fuse 
package, which includes /etc/udev/rules.d/99-fuse.rules, and an ltsp 
package also installs that file.  The two packages are thus fighting 
over who wins.

What you do is rename the 99-fuse.rules file to, say, 99-fuse.rules.bak 
and then go to /var/cache/yum/k12ltsp/packages.  Do an "rpm -Uvh 
--force" on whatever package it is that wants to install a new 
99-fuse.rules (it starts with "fuse").  Then, once you're done, you 
should have both 99-fuse.rules (from the new CentOS 5.4 fuse package) 
and your .bak version from the ltsp-something package.

Give your system a test drive w/ a thin client.  If you're doing local 
floppies or something similar, be sure to try that out.  If things are 
continuing to work just fine, then leave things as they are.  If not, 
then just rename the new 99-fuse.rules file to 99-fuse.rules.rpmnew or 
something like that, and rename your "old" one from the ltsp-something 
package to 99-fuse.rules.
