If a box responds on 132/135 then its likely a PC and it will try to install the agent. If these ports don't respond then it wouldn't make any sense to try and install anything.
LT makes use of snmp information to classify nodes. Once snmp responds it uses the device information to apply snmp templates. Outside of these two cases there isn't much else which can be picked up. I'm not sure if osx and linux are automatically detected. I would guess not.
