Is your current bit depth really 8 bits?  Just wondering,

It did not work.  I am sure there are problems with xf_dx.dll.
On startup, a small window blinks and disappears if, starxwin.bat file is
used to boot X-server.

Using startx from a bash shell, I get the following:

_XSERVTransmkdir: Owner of /tmp/.X11-unix should be set to root
Desired pwin->width = 00000280
Desired pwin->height = 000001e0
Desired pwin->paddedWidth = 00000280
Desired pwin->bitsPerPixel = 00000008

Fatal server error:
Couldn't add screen 0

If I replace your modified XWin.exe with mine (default one from archive)
the error is still same, which means probelms are in xf_dx.dll. Because, I
do not have your changes to source code, yet, I could not debug it.

I get same results on Win98, Win Me, Win2K and WinNT 4.0.
