Default xfree86 32 color depth supported?

Apologize as I'm a bit of a newbie at this.

I'm installing Redhat Enterprise WS on a Toshiba Satellite P15-S409 notebook (It uses an nVidia Go FX 5100 chip with 32MB).

The laptop has a widescreen (WXGA) TFT LCD and I'm running it at 1280x800.

I installed the 5328 drivers and everything is looking good, but have a problem enableing 32 bit color depth. Up to 24 works, just can't get to 32.

The error is that it isn't supported with this hardware.

In WinXP it's running 1280x800 32bit @ 60Hz just fine.

Is this a xfree86 config issue or is it nVidia driver related?

I don't have access to the system right now, but will post the config and logs as soon as I can.

In the meantime, any ideas on what to check?
