linux 8?????? There ain't no such thing.

We need your distribution (Red Hat Slackware SuSe, Mandrake, etc.) and the release version.

# What is the distribution
cat /etc/.product
cat /etc/.issue
cat /etc/issue
cat /etc/

I understand that SiS video isn't supported so svga is the best you can hope for.

# Configuring X
Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO - video cards
The Linux XFree86 HOWTO
Common X configuring tools:
Debian - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
Mandrake - XFdrake
Redhat 7.3 down - the setup utility leads to several config tools
Redhat 7.3 up - redhat-config-xfree86
You may have these tools:
XFree86 -configure
