Problem with fbdev and 16bpp

I have a 8600, and X dumps every time I try and start it with 16 set for color depth in the XF86Config. I can get it to run 1024x768 at 8 just fine.

I assume there is a work around, I saw an alusion to one on a Rage + X page.

I have searched high and low, and have not found an answer to this issue. Can someone point me in the right direction ?
