Like I said, you need to find out how much video RAM you *really* have.
SuperProbe said the same thing with my Millenium G200 8MB card.  Try to
find the spec somewhere so you can get both the correct video RAM and
the correct dot-clock. Also, knowing the frequency ranges of your
monitor (if multisync) is handy.  I'm not sure on the translations
between bits-per-pixel, resolution, video memory and max dot clock, but
at 8bpp I'd think you could get that resolution with 2MB of video RAM.
So, perhaps a low max dot-clock or your monitor sync ranges are causing
X to bail at that resolution.
