Note: Google search also reveals that this problem was found (and addressed) in 
some recent Debian Releases.
1) Use X -configure .. to create an  xorg.conf file

2) X -ac -broadcast -once 
Change Driver to "vesa".

This probably prevents the machine from using the full potential of the SiS 
chip :(
