You should play with the '-depth' option with bit-per-pixel values: 8, 16,
24 or 32.

The '-co file' has the color definitions in it: what color names belong to
what pixel value.

Lot's of X11 related details (Xvnc is a X11-server) can be found in the X11
documentation. Try `man X` or `man x` for a startpoint.
