You need S3V server... but I think it wasn't available with 4.2. Also you must have a link named /usr/X11R6/bin/X pointing to XF86_S3V...
Standard configuration (XF86Setup or xf86config) should support ok up to 32 (24) bit colors. Try

startx -- -bpp 16

and one of 24 or 32 should work also. In case you have problem try:

X -probeonly -bpp 16 2>/tmp/debug

and inspect contents of the created file...

Good luck
