I've got a Compaq 3000 quad Pentium III/500 w/ 2.5GB DRAM, and K12LTSP 
3.1.2 works nicely for me--video, Gig NIC, and all.

For the video issues, I see that with LCDs more often than anything 
else.  You might want to go to a command prompt (hit Ctrl-Alt-F1), log 
in/become root, run xf86config (might also be called xorgconfig, since 
some distros now use X.org vs. XFree86), and set your max vertical 
resolution to 60Hz.  I don't know of a monitor made since 1992 that 
can't do 60Hz.  You might also consider running your server in 
800x600x16bit, or even 800x600x8bit if necessary.  Note that you will 
need to know your video chipset to do this and how much video RAM you 
have (I'm guessing 512kB or 1MB).  The clients, remember, do *not* use 
the server's own video display settings for themselves.  For example, my 
clients all run at 1024x768x24bit, but my server runs at 800x600x16bit.
