Convert 24bit color BMP to 8bit color BMP

I am trying to create an application that will show only 256 color bitmaps. I need help in finding code or libraries that will do that for me.
Can someone help me?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you have MSDN, search for bitmap quantization and you should come up with an article in MSJ Aug 96 by Jeff Prosise. This code does exactly that.

If you don't have MSDN, go to www.microsoft.com/MSJ and download the code for that issue.
