I'd like to add that 32 bit color has four channels.. Red, Blue, Green, and an Alpha channel used for transparency effects.. even 24 bit color is usually stored in a 32 bit integer. Even though linux has no support for 32 bit color, most video cards don't accellerate 24 bit color, instead everything is "padded" to 32 bit color I think anyway.
