Thanks Emil, I was able to get it working. Well, I was able to get a client to boot to it anyhow. I haven't tested other things like local storage, but I was able to boot into a useable environment.
Using EPEL instead of the "new" s3 repository worked for me. Maybe the install instructions on the wiki need to be changed again? I didn't need to do bridging, as assigning any network device assigned to will make the networking work correctly. Otherwise I followed the older version of the install instructions from the wiki. No need to mess with turning network on or network manager off since we aren't using the bridge anymore either!

>> I've been unable to get LTSP to build on Scientific Linux 6.4. When I go to install ltsp-server (yum install ltsp-server) in cancels saying that it cannot find the 'mock' package, which is a dependency for ltsp-server. Has anyone else been able to install ltsp on CentOS 6.4 or RHEL 6.4?
