Direct Rendering with SiS integrated video

Yeah, I know, it ain't the best video in the world, but my motherboard doesn't have an agp slot and I can't afford a new one at this time. I am pretty sure that the chipset will support direct rendering, I just haven't a clue as to go about it. Also, you will note that my refresh rate is configured way low -- I know that my monitor is capable of I think around 85MHz. Micron Electronics is printed on the case, but I know that isn't who actually made it.

The questions are:

1)Can I/How do I enable direct rendering with this chipset?

2)Can I just edit my xorg.conf file to reflect the proper refresh rate?

Ubuntu Dapper
2.6.15 K7 kernel

Section "Device"
Identifier "Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter"
Driver "sis"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 28-64
VertRefresh 43-60

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Look in in my for the DRI link. It deals w/Intel/ATI/Nvidia, but on my SIS chip box, the i810 works. Read thru it, see if it helps.
