Red Hat - xf86config


hi, I just installed on my box Red Hat 7.1, everything went well until the x server setup. It seems like RH does not support SiS 630/730 chipsets. Well my problem is that I dont know what else to do?, I have tried xf86config and xf86setup like 20 times but nothing helps. Should I try to download a driver for linux?. Please, any help will be welcomed.

Thanx in advance, jdiaz.

ie: my hardaware speficications are:
SiS 630/730 chipset w/ integrated video
Integrated SiS 900 Fast Ethernet adp
Integrated SiS 7018 sound
320 Mb PC100 generic memory (16 Mb shared with video)
AMD Athlon at 900 mghz
SiS PCI IDE controller
1 HDD on IDE0:
29 Gb Seagate
44x CDROM on IDE1


Also, I dont know if anyone has had this problem, but when i try to install RH 7.2 from a cd, the comp just stops running, and it gives me a black page, if anyone knows about this problem plz reply.

You could try XF86Config-4 (same directory as XF86Config).

Are you running xf86config from kde or gnome? if you are you need to open a terminal window and type init 3 then run xf86config. then type init 5 to restart X.
