Dear Sir,

Can do.  I'll have the setup along with me at the Lenox in Boston.
I figure 3 iBooks and one 4 port switch (1 Server and 2 clients)
shouldn't be too bad to carry around.  It'll be nice to have a 
portable network to mess with over there.

I have gotten X to run on the iBook now thanks to Jim M's suggestion
to put the XF86Config.ws004 in /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc.  Now my last 
problem is that the actual size of the display is larger than
the physical size of the 12" iBook monitor.  So about 4" is cut 
off on the right hand and bottom edges.  I am sure this is one more
tweak to the XF86Config but I don't know what to change since this 
is an exact duplicate of the XF86Config in the running YDL server 
iBook that displays fine).  Any more suggestions would be awesome.
Till then I'll just poke at settings and see what happens.

I think I am going to fire up a Bondi, Indigo, and flat panel iMac
quick just to see what happens.

you need to check entries in  /opt/ltsp/ppc/etc/XF86Config.ws004 as

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24                      <----THIS 
        SubSection "Display"
         Depth     24                            <----THIS 
         Modes    "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" <----THIS 

i mean change the depth and/or Modes, you need to fiddle a bit.

hope this helps.
