Unhappy can't install sis display card problem

when I install RH - 7.1 with text or graphical mode it shows blue screen and then running anaconda.
after that it doesn't proceed any more and unmounts drives and says "u can safely switch off the system"

I have come to know that the problem is due to sis display card which it doesn't recognize.

plz help me out.

The solution I see is to look which module is needed for your graphic card and install it.
Suggestion: rh 7.1 isn't the best rh version. if possible, change to 7.2.

What SIS card? If it is a 730 just use the driver for 630/620.
