SiS648/693 Supported in Fedora C2?

Is there a list of the chipsets that FedoraC2 supports? I have been wandering aimlessly in the folders on my disc and forums trying to find such a thing. I have an SiS648/963 mobo with AGP, USB, and other problems with the install and see that there is an AGP problem at boot.

Thank you.

I installed FC2 on ECS P4S8AG (SIS648+963). Everything went perfectly (HDD, CDROM, on board graphics, lan). Ran straight out of the box, no tweaking necessary at all. Haven't tested sound or usb yet but the relevant modules are loaded so looks promising

To get 3D graphic support: Start -> System Settings -> Display
Choose Hardware tab
Video Card Configure -> SIS 650

The card isn't recognised properly out of the box and a VESA driver is chosen by default instead. Couldn't find a SIS 648 but 650 looks encouraging.

restart X and it should be working.

If anyone can suggest improvements, I'd be grateful.
