Setting Color Depth on Suse 8.2 under VMWare


I have a WindowsXP Prof and just install VMware 4.0.1. As a guest system I install Suse 8.2. I have installed vmware tools too. I can change the screen resolution, but I can choose only 8bit(256) color. With better color after the test I become en error message:
Currently unavailable depth/bpp of 15/16 requested.
Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I use VMWARE0710 graphics card in SUSE and under WinXP Intel 845G (1280x1024x32bit)

How can I use more colors?
