On the Debian-based LTSP 5 systems I've used, ldm must be on SCREEN_07
or higher.  Maybe the same for Fedora?

On Ubuntu LTSP 5, lts.conf goes in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386.  There
was a discussion about a month back on the ltsp-user list as to why it
wouldn't work if it was /etc/lts.conf -- basically it is not available
to the thin client filesystem.
