It's been my experience that it doesn't work reliably.  I've specified
the color depth before and had it come up in 16-bit color; needless to 
say, that really sucks bandwidth.

The bgr233 mode does some other things too, like half-way decent

The same is true with the geometry line.  On Linux, this isn't such a
problem, since you can specify a geometry on the vncserver command
line and get what you want that way.  For 9x/NT, however, you're
pretty much stuck with whatever your screen is set at.
