Thank you, Eric! I've been using 3.1 quite happily, the new apt and yum 
packages would be nice... but I would upgrade in a heartbeat if there 
was better GUI controls for configuring older monitors! Is there 
anything like that in the new packages? We had tried LTSP 4 on my 
existing network and lost usage of half of my old monitors; they  work 
fine with 3.1.

My Principal has given me the green light on another K12ltsp lab but 
it'll be nothing but 14" and 15" monitors and dumpster CPUs. A local 
business offered twenty old working monitors, enough for the new lab. 
The new PXEs.iso < http://pxes.sourceforge.net/ > is looking very 
promising for older NIC cards etc. but the manual monitor config still 
causes brain damage ;) especially when there is a room full of 'em.

I read up a bit not heard anything about X.org and its ability to handle 
older monitor refresh rates. Have you heard or seen anything about X.org 
and older monitors?

all the best,
