Older GD Lib and jpeg photo thumbnail generation

I'm using a server which only has GD version 1.6.2, with jpeg support
enabled. I'm trying to use it to make thumbnails of jpeg photos as they are
uploaded from a webform, but moving from my development server (which has GD
2.x) to the real server I noticed the lower GD lib version, and that it
doesn't support imagecreatetruecolor. Without this, using imagecreate, the
converted image always come out almost always a single colour, or with very
little variation in the colour. Using some images I found in XP as a test,
one has green plants with a few bright red flowers - if i just use
imagecreate, the bright red flowers are green too. I'm using
imagecopyresampled to do the copy. Is there another way to do this without
getting newer libraries installed on the server?
