Thanks Oli.

I changed the refresh rates and that makes the display look
a little better, but it doesn't seem like the resolution is
running at 1024x768, which is my overall goal.  I was hoping
X_MODE might be one way for me to do this, but I understand
when you say it's not supported yet.  

I feel like I'm wearing out my welcome here by asking
all these questions so I'll try to discipline myself and
keep it brief.

How should I force my client to use 1024x768?

It's unclear to me where the regular LTSP project ends and
Edubuntu LTSP starts.  Is there technical documentation that
explains Edubuntu LTSP so that I can try to figure out more
of these answers myself?  

Is this problem more suited for either a bounty or paid
support question?  I ask this question because I'm
experimenting with Edubuntu as a replacement for Gentoo.  I
like Gentoo and have been using it for a few years but I
found I was spending more time administrating Gentoo
than I was doing useful work.  I'm trying to avoid going down that
path again with Edubuntu. 

Thanks again,
