SIS 6215 VGA Graphics Card

I tried installing FC3 on a system that has LG new monitor but the VGA card is SIS 6215 VGA Graphics Card.

It got booted and started the normal scanning.
It detected the monitor and loaded some VESA generic driver and detected the scroll mouse. Afte this the screen went blank (black). I waited and waited and then I hit CTRL+ALT+DEL after which the screen showed upto the scroll mouse detected then graphics falied and then terminating session...dont remember the actual terms but these it was like this - I tried this 3-4 times.

Cant FC3 load a driver for SIS 6215 ?

If not will FC4 have it ?
