SetBitmapBits with 32 bit color DIB in non true color system

Dear experts

I'm using VC++5.0.
I'd like to SetBitmapBits which is created with CreateCompatibleBitmap with 32 bit color DIB which I drew.
So, I tried with CBitmap::SetBitmapBits().
It works well in 32 bit color VGA.
But it makes abnormal display in NON 32 bit color VGA.
Can anyone let me know how to load 32 bit color DIB to a bitmap regardless of system color ? i.e. work in any color bit VGA.

Any comments will be appreciated.

I work with Borland C++(OWL), but i think,
 that is same problem: Palette!
 You must set you palette to Context.
 Code must be something as:
 //
    TPalette *tPalette;
 //  define palette for case read
    if (read)
      {
      TDib *tDib = new TDib("file.bmp");
      tPalette =  new TPalette(*tDib);
      }
    else             //or make this manually
     {
         PALETTEENTY Palette;
         HDC hdc = GetDC(NULL);
         GetSystemPaletteEntries(hdc,0,256,Palette);
         ReleaseDC(NULL, hdc);
         tPalette = new TPalette(Palette, 256);
     }
//use palette
  TBitmap *tBitmap = Window->FindBitmap();//make bitmap
  mdc = CreateCompatibleDC(hdc);
  TMemoryDC  *mdc = (TMemoryDC *)CreateCompatibleDC(dc);
  HPALETTE hOldPal1 = SelectPalette(*mdc, tPalette,NULL);
  RealizePalette(*mdc);
                        //select bitmap
  mdc->SelectObject(*tBitmap);
                        //display bitmap
  BitBlt(dc, 0, 0, nMaxx, nMaxy,mdc, 0,0,SRCCOPY);
// if this palette(Standart or bitmap's) not availible
// for you Display, you can use Nearest color, as
  COLORREF lCol = GetPixel(dc,j + nXStart, nY - i-1 + nYStart);
                              //nearest color of Palette
  BYTE nTest =      GetNearestPaletteIndex(hPal, lCol);

//More information about palette you can read in Windows
//Help or in Books, as(for example):
// Eric R.Lyons: Black Art of Windows Game Programming

What I want is SetBitmapBits or Create Bitmap with 32bit color DIB. OF course, CBitmap is compatible with DC (non-32bit VGA).
