I have been running LTSP 4 for ever now, as I can live without the new
stuff (business setting makes it easier) and I can say that LTSP 4 works
just fine with RHEL6. YMMV, but for basic stuff it's fine. Another option
is to run a separate server (may be VM) with whatever version of Linux
suits your version of LTSP. Tried it too - no problems.
