How to change screen colors

I've installed Mandrake 10 on a server platform that has a minimal graphics card which only supports 256 colors at 1024x768. I chose KDE as the desktop, but I can barely see some of the desktop (can can't see a lot of it). How can I changed the theme or colors it is using to make it more readable (assuming I'll have to do this in some config file since I can't see the desktop to navigate it).

what do you need KDE in a SERVER situation for??

sorry my server doesn't even have xwindows installed i use only the command line

maybe you could go buy a cheap video card like 20 bucks i am sure you could get 16 bit color

thats my 2 cents
