Just look for XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file in /etc/X11 directory.
Change default color depth from 24 to 16 in the Section "Screen" You
will know if you have the correct section as it will contain the

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "Nvidia Geforce 4"
    Monitor     "Hitachi SuperScan 811"
    DefaultDepth 24 <----- Change that to 16 and make sure you have the
following setion on your XF86Config as well

Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480" 
        ViewPort    0 0
		Virtual 0 0
You should have a Subsection "Display" for 8-bit, 16-bit and 24-bit...

Hope this helps :)
