If you're in X, exit and restart it with:
startx -- -bpp 32

If that gives you 32-bit color, look for this section
toward the bottom of your XF86Config, add what I have
in brackets (you might want Modes at "800x600", but 
you didn't ask about screen resolution).

Section "Screen"
    Driver      "svga"
    # Use Device "Generic VGA" for Standard VGA 320x200x256
    #Device      "Generic VGA"
    Device      "My Video Card"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"
[   Subsection "Display"
        Depth       32    
        Modes       "640x480" ]
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8    
        # Omit the Modes line for the "Generic VGA" device
        Modes       "640x480"  
        ViewPort    0 0

Same thing/same place, in the accelerated servers section
at the very bottom.
