Dear Otmar,

 there is still the possibility to buy Accelerated X, a comercial X-server
 which is able to provide you a PseudoColor visual overlay on a TruyeColor
 visual. This X-server provides support of accelerated graphic hardware. A
 stand alone license costs about 100-200 DM but a OEM version of Accelerated X
 is included in the Deutsche-Linux Distribution DLD which is cheaper than
 the stand alone Xserver. Go to www.delix.de for more information and a
 link to Accelerated X.
