Would this be something like from 24 bit to 16 bit? Modifying your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file, locate the line "default depth" and change accordingly.

u can't do it in kde per se. go to the command line, become superuser (i.e. root) and run Xconfigurator (something redhat has that makes things easier for you rather than the manual method MasterC suggested). Just follow the steps through and select what you want along the way. You can change the color modes there.
