I'm trying to create an image that can be accurately displayed on a 256 color screen.

How can I setup Photoshop so when I create the image, it only uses 256 colors?
And how can I make sure when I save the file to a PCX or BMP, that it saves it to a 256 color format?

Try changing the mode of your picture to "Indexed Color" it will give you the option of converting it to 256 color (Or as few colors as you want)
