Thank you Jim,
It seems that 800x600 is as good as Jim McQuillan and I can get it right 
now.  I had forgotten about ALT and Mouse movement to move the windows...  
This just works fine.  thank you for all of the help and suggestions.

Are all of the monitors that don't work the same brand and model?  If so
what is is?  Maybe you could lookup the monitors and find supported
resolutions with refresh rates.  Then chase down the proper settings.  You
don't by any chance have a backup of the old setup lying around that you
could pull the lts.conf from and see what things were set to before do you?
Maybe you could build a quick test machine with 3.1.2 if not and boot one of
the troublesome clients from it to be sure things are working, then grab the
lts.conf from the working 3.1.2 system and try it in your 4.2 box.

Here is a link I found in the archives for some other settings to try:
