Zhia Hwa, I noticed that you've not received any replys to this post. Do
you still need help, or did you get it sorted out?

You might have a look through some of the google responses:

Also, from launchpad & forums:
[SiS 771/671 Mirage 3 Video Drivers!?!?]
[3D driver or SiS 671/672?]

[Doesn't look very promising]
