You want to use the lts.conf file in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/,
IIRC the file in /opt/ltsp is the old location, and isn't used
anymore. Try adding X_MODE_0 = 1024x768 to that file.
Sometimes this happens because it is detecting the video chipset
wrong and using a lower resolution. If you and a shell on one of the
client screens you should be able to check what it's using. You can
specify X_COLOR_DEPTH = 16 and XSERVER = trident if it still won't
give you the right resolution. I think it defaults to 24 bit color on
Fedora, which causes a problem for some older video cards, especially
at higher resolutions.
