X* options are not supported currently.  It is an ati graphics driver 
bug if your particular hardware is broken.  What happens when it tries 
to use the ati graphics driver natively?  Are you able to switch into 
CTRL-ALT-F2 and look at /var/log/Xorg* files?

You can optionally use the X_CONF lts.conf parameter to force your 
clients to use its own xorg.conf file that you specify.  You can specify 
in this xorg.conf options like vesa driver.


/opt/ltsp/i386/etc/xorg.conf-somethingelse being the actual location of 
that config file.
