Well, it seems that your card has some interesting points to begin with. First of all, here is an (older) site that deals with Sis based GAs and Linux:
However, this post from the Gentoo forums suggests that SISfb is no longer needed. So, my question to you is:
Do you have all the requisite VESAfb references in your LILO config file?
