Description of problem:
I used

Xconfigurator --kickstart --monitor generic06

on computer with an S3 card (with 4MB). It would set up
1024x768@32bpp which does not work with this card. Only
16bpp turend out to work. Moreover it only would add entries for
24 and 32bpp.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Xconfigurator --kickstart --monitor generic06

Additional info:

This is not the only card where "--kickstart" sets up a mode which
does not work. It would be best to use a default color depth of "16" if
"--kickstart" is used since this usually works on all machines.

Morevoer, it would be extremely cool if one could specify the
default on the commandline like

--resolution xresXyres --depth 16

This would be an extremely cool feature!
