Yes. Using the latest jackd1 release will make this easier, however,
you can also go for whatever your distribution has available.

Basically, you run

   $ jackd -d alsa

on the first box and

   $ jackd -d net

on the second. If you have jackd2, it would be "netone", not "net".

You then use Fons' zita-ajbridge on the second machine to connect to
your physical I/O. (they replace the older alsa_in/out tools)

The latest jackd1 can do the last two steps in one step.

Maybe netjack2 is also an option for you. Go for whatever works.
