Does netscape refuse to launch with that option, or does it just not
solve the problem?

Find the section in your /etc/X11/XF86Config that has the "Screen"
section entry for the server (driver) you are actually using and
modify it to have a DefaultColorDepth option like this (I'm using the
SVGA server):

Section "Screen"
   Driver          "SVGA"
   Device          "Primary Card"
   Monitor         "Primary Monitor"
   DefaultColorDepth 16
   SubSection "Display"

Then next time the server is launched (via xdm or whatever), it'll be
16 bit.  Note that in the case of xdm you have to actually kill the
server via Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or stop and start xdm to get the server
to reset.

OK, mail me the output of xdpyinfo when you're using the display.
