Default New FX 5600 user question-32 bit color depth

I recently installed an Asylum Geforce FX 5600 card using the 4496-pkg2 installer on a RedHat 8.0 system. I made a few mistakes along the way, in particular not backing up my old XF86Config file. It is now installed, and mostly works great-very fast compared to my old ATI rage card.

One thing that I couldn't do is set XF86 for 32 bit color. When I try this, the X server crashes back to text mode.

I have another problem with my keyboard. My keyboard is a Logitech Internet Navigator keyboard, and it has a scroll wheel that worked before I upgraded the graphics card but doesn't now. I probably caused this problem by reconfiguring the X server using xf86config without backing up the old XF86Config file.
