Try a low screen size with 16bit color. Something like 640x480x16.  This should enable the video driver and hardware. Sometimes, 256 color is not the video driver but the software driver that comes with Windows.

Since you have an AGP video board, you need the proper drivers. As I recall the driver does not install unless you install directX first. When the driver is not installed, you get only VGA 649x480x16.

AGP BIOS settings: Set your video aperature to half of you ram - 16mb. Set the video card to AGP.

Set the desktop to any mode in at least 16bit color to enable the video card's driver.

Make sure you have met all the criteria for the application.
