I disagree here, I think you have to supply a DCD, just make sure you picked
the right one. Is your display set to 256 colours when you boot into Linux?
In case you are running potato, did you run xserver-configure? It should be
run when you install X, if not, try to run it again. It basically just
copies the example config file, but AFAIR this should do it. And it also
tells you about the two things you might have to modify, mouse and
DefaultColorDepth (and the keyboard?).
