I've found that if I change colors like this it doesn't work quite right on
all my workstations (running LTSP) most of them get it but the ones that
only display 8 bit color don't see the different colors Is this normal?

You can try to define the mapping of terminal colors to X-colors with
X-resources. You can even do this for 3 different resource class names
and switch theses with some changes in xt5250.

I have in my .Xresources:

xt5250*color0:                   seashell
xt5250*color1:                   #330000
xt5250*color2:                   #000000
xt5250*color3:                   #333300
xt5250*color4:                   #000033
xt5250*color5:                   #330033
xt5250*color6:                   #003333
xt5250*color7:                   black
xt5250*color8:                   green
xt5250*color9:                   #660000
xt5250*color10:                  #333333
xt5250*color11:                  #666600
xt5250*color12:                  darkblue
xt5250*color13:                  #660066
xt5250*color14:                  #003366
xt5250*color15:                  black
xt5250*cursorColor:              red2

and the terminal comes up with a very different color scheme. With an
additional

xt5250-2*color0:                azure
.
.
.

and an xt5250 which calls xterm with -T "xt5250-2" you should get a
terminal with azure blue background.
