Take a look in which "SubSection" you make the changes... If you prefer
24 bit colour, set the mode like this, and don't forget to add the line
with "DefaultDepth", so X knows in which colour mode you want to start.

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        DefaultDepth 24
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes   "1024x768"
