Half-Life Problem

OK when I try running Half-Life I get a "16 bit colors support not enabled" or whatever it is bla bla, which is fixed by changing the DefaultDepth in the XF86Config file to 16.....

Here is my problem

ATI has decided (dont ask me where this almost einstein idea came from) to compile their drivers without 16 bit color support.

I have a ATI Radeon 9700 Pro (All in Wonder)... now I like having direct rendering support (ATI seems to have the only new drivers that support direct rendering with the new Radeon cards (9500 and newer) so I would like to keep that.

Is there any way to force Half-Life to open? I know this is probably more of a basic Half-Life question... but I have nowhere to go with it since Sierra isnt too good about customer service. :P

Any help would be awesome, thanks.
