Hi Thomas,
Thanks for replying.  The resources on this machine are definitely
limited, but I would think it would try to approximate those colors
with something similar from the 256 color palette (I think its 256
I can set the root window's background to a solid color or a bitmap
image with xsetroot.  I've got a 128 MB swap partition set up, but its
barely being used, so I don't think I've hit the ceiling yet.   I feel
