This is my Screen section:

# The accelerated servers (S3, Mach32, Mach8, 8514, P9000, AGX, W32,
# I128, and S3V)
Section "Screen"
    Driver      "accel"
    Device      "S3 Inc.|86c764/765 [Trio32/64/64V+]"
    Monitor     "My Monitor"
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0

This only allows a 640x480x8bpp. I have a S3 Trio with only 1Mb video RAM.
Is simply a problem of configuration, I don't know how to tell X server to
enable 640x480x16 and 800x600x16.
