Angry sis 650 and redhat 7.1

Hi people...

I just got a fujitsu siemens laptop Amilo EL, and it cames with almost everything from SIS. My problem is, i don't have X, a surf the net loking for it, but i don't understant much, at my first instalation, the X blinked and only in console mode it work ... bad, because sometimes it blinked to, enought times so i did not logon. reinstaling every thing, but putting the logon on text mode, and configuring the VGA card for generic laptop display. i have a console, but no X. what do i have to do?

Note: I have winXP and redhat 7.1 instaled, using lilo for boot.

Plese help if you can, but don't forget ....

First of all - the drivers that come with RH 7.1 are way outdated;especially when comes to SIS and graphics.Go to for info about SIS drivers, plus I do get tired of this.
