How to use -bpp 16 -bpp 24 -bpp 32 when using XDM?

I'd like to know how to use -bpp 16 -bpp 24 -bpp 32 when using XDM?

I usually use: "startx -- -bpp nn" from the command line,
but I cannot do this with XDM.

Thanks,

XDM uses a config file called Xservers to fire up servers. You can find it
in /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers. Add your -bpp options to the X line there.

 Try adding :

     DefaultColorDepth 16

under 'Section "Device"' of  your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.

Starting with XFree86 v3.2 there is an option called
DefaultColorDepth=xx
that can be iuncluded in the XF86Config file.
