Greetings Everyone,

I have XFree86 4.02 installed (we'll get to that in a moment) here on my
dual 500 G4, and it's stuck in 8bit color, and it's horrendous.

In the XFConfig86 file, if I change the 8 to a 16 in the monitor section
towards the end of the doc, X won't boot. It'll throw me back into console,
with no GUI.

As installed with YDL, XF 3.x was installed, and that was also in 8bit
color. I downloaded all of the XF4 source, compiled it, maked it, maked
installed it, etc. So, I think I have all of that installed.

Now, I --need-- to get out of 8bit color! And yes Virginia, I am a newbie.
