Default PseudoColor mode

I am using a GeForce4 MX440 card under RH9
My new linux applications need a 24 bit color X11 server
Here is my Screen Section, this works well.
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "GeForce4MX440"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

But I have some older applications who need 8 bit colors
in PseudoColor mode.
Is it possible to share 24 bit and 8 bit pseudocolors with
the same X11 server ?

Thanks for help .

Default Re: PseudoColor mode

X can't do depth switching or things like that. Normally 8bit apps should work fine perhaps a little slower but they should work.
