Colors in Xfree

Hello!!!

I recently downloaded the XF86_SVGA for Trident 9680 PCI video card, I can get until 1024 x 768 pixel but only 256 colors. however with XV I can see more colors in 8 bit. Can I see more than 256 colors with Netscape?.
If it so please let me know.

Thanks

If you've only got 1 Mb of vram, you're not going to be able
to do more than 256 colors in Netscape at 1024 x 768.
However, in the graphics device section of your XF86Config, if
you specify:  Option "fast_dram"
...then you can run 800x600 at 16 bpp deep.  If you have 2 Mb
vram on that card then you should be able to run 1024 x 768 at
16 bpp w/ no problem.  Try:   startx -- -bpp 16 (and make sure
you have a screen section in XF86Config for depth 16)
