I have the same Integrated SiS Mirage 3 Graphics Subsytem. Specifically it is the SiS671 series.
And I'm facing the same problem.
I'm using Debian-AMD64-lenny.
Currently the screen is configured through vesa, and I only get 1280x1024. The monitor is 17" and I would like atleast 1440x900.
Adding the required resolution (1440x900) the xorg.conf file did not help.
Then I tried
dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
and selected the "sis" driver instead of vesa. But I could not get any display. I got an error saying:
No devices detected.
Then I found this
at the ubuntufourms, but the driver suggested there was only for x86. (I'm on Intel Core2 Duo, and Debian 64 bit)
