	SDL does handle 8 bit gfx. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I
never used 8 bit with SDL, but reading the docs and judging by the
examples, it should work. And I too join the SDL Support Team
here and suggest it to you :) It's really good, and you need not take
only my word for this: SDL was used to port Civ:CTP, Myth II:
Soublighter to Linux along with other commercial games (Railroad
Tycoon, etc), is being used to develop some commercial quality
games like Hopkins FBI and a 2D Isometric client for the
WorldForge project, and it was used in a Sega Genesis emulator
for Linux, among many other success cases that I can't remember
right now.

	It's cross-platform, running on Linux, Windows and BeOS, with
non-official support for FreeBSD and alpha-stage support for Mac.
Take a look at the docs and demos and judge it for yourself.
