Uhh... if I understood correctly, the clients run on the IPX but
the server is XF4 under x86 running at 16 bpp.
This way I see no reason why the display would be limited to 8bpp.
The setup here is similar, I run colorhungry apps (ER-Mapper, Matlab)
remotely on cheap x86 with 32 bpp Xserver with no problems...
Or am I completely mistaken here (?)
