I have a sis video card. My understanding is that they all use the "sis" driver. Just edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf manually.

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "** SiS (generic)                      [sis]"
    Driver      "sis"
If you want more info on sis video cards, is the site to check out.

Good luck,

I have an SiS 740 and I can use pretty much any of the specific SiS drivers that don't match or just the generic. There really needs to be 3D acceleration with SiS cards also.
