I have an old laptop with SiS 630/730 graphics - that one works with the 
built-in 1024x768 display out of the box. But I know someone else with a 
SiS 671/771 chipset and 1280x800 display which has no current driver. It 
really depends on you graphics chipset if it works. What is your 
chipset? You can find it out with the command


in a terminal. At [1] I found the driver for SiS 671/771 and Ubuntu 
9.04. Maybe there will come a driver for 9.10 also?

Anyway, if you have a choice, avoid SiS - they don't seem to support
