It's a Gateway PII 233 MHz. The video card is AGP,
not PCI. I don't know the specs on the motherboard
(the computer is not in the same building as me right
Last night I installed Mandrake 10.1 on that machine
to see what x-server it chose as the default. It was
GLoria Synergy (and it was later referred to as Elsa
GLoria Synergy). It identified the monitor as
1024x768 @ 70Hz, and set the resolution to 800x600
24bpp. With these settings it booted and ran KDE
The question now is, how to I get these settings when
the machine acts as a thin client? GLoria Synery
doesn't seem to be listed as an option for x-servers.
Can I find it somewhere and copy it over the the ltsp
