How do I change the colordepth in RedHat 5.2.
Mistakenly set colors to 256 or something during installation.
A previous installation proved it supports 24 bit colors. Don't want to
reinstall the thing.

Thanks

TufCrane in Korea...

Run X with like this
$ startx -- -bpp 16
or $ startx -- -bpp 24
or $ startx -- -bpp 32
before run this u must set color depth in xf86config
