Hey. I have a Targus ACP60 which has an XGI Volari Z9 chip. Trying the
vesa driver, I get a message that it only works with Z9s. I'm trying to
get the XGI driver compiled but having problems. I've tried sis and
sisfb without luck. Could you throw me your working sis xorg.conf?

I can confirm that the sis driver works fine with that hardware. I have
it for sometime with Tyan motherboards. X does not seem to think that
the right driver though so it is not assigned automatically, you'd have
create a configuration file with sis as the driver in the Device
