[K12OSN] client resolution using vesa driver

I've installed FC6 (K12LTSP but without installing the LTSP parts) on a machine that I 
also use as a client for my K12LTSP 5 server.  The FC6 correctly detects the Via video 
chipset on the motherboard, and in the xorg.conf file it uses the vesa driver.  With 
this, it gives me a 1600x1200 resolution, which I like.  However, as a client to my 
K12LTSP 5 server, during bootup, it says it cannot identify the video hardware and so it 
is falling back to using the vesa driver.  That would seem to be okay since that's what 
the FC6 is using.  But I can't get the resolution to be any higher than 800x600, despite 
various changes in the lts.conf file.  Why would that be, since both are using the vesa
