Could I be running out of video memory?  If I switch from the DevonIT 6020p to a
Diskless Workstations Term150 I can load a little more graphics.  The webpages I posted
before to test have very large photos.  I can load the page with about 4MB of photos
with the Term150, it crashes when it loads about half that with the 6020p.  Is there a
setting in lts.conf I can use to increase how much memory is allocated to video?
