I suppose, better SiS drivers are not pretty much available for Redhat Linux / Fedora ..

I have SiS 650 , but there aren't drivers available for it. I suppose, most fedora, and redhat, have comparatively much better support for Intel based Motherboards and chipsets

update

I thought i would try a nvidia video card. I put one in nvidia geforce 4 (64mb) and the machine starts with it but when it gets to the part where it would boot linux it throws me to the bios with a pci allocation error 1801 , i read up on this and it says that it gives me that message because the computer is out of rom space and cannot load any more pci cards that use rom space. this makes sence because when i boot it wont boot the hdd because the scsi controller is using rom resources also, the thing is i cannot disable the scsi rom stuff because my boot disk is a scsi ? any ideas ?
