If you are running X, your display need to be set up to have a resolution
in 800x600 to actually use this resolution. If you need true 16 bpp
support, your x server need to run in this resolution. 

SDL can emulate both (if there is a larger surface and software
conversion), but X can not change bpp on demand.
