I thought I saw a seperate package for SiS in the standard potato lineup;
if you're doing X 3.3.6 you'll probably want that...

The other thing is, I notice you say "shared memory" -- 
  your system pulls the same trick the i810 does, which is that there is no 
  dedicated memory for the video card (unused excess is not wasted either) ... 
  you would need a kernel module to honor the proper sharing of memory with 
  standard processes.
