SiS Video not recognised

Having checked elsewhere and drawn a blank, I hope I might get some help
here :-)

I've just bought a new PC, which has a Foxconn motherboard running AMD
Sempron and integrated SiS (741 series) video controller.  When Fedora 3
 installed and on subsequent delves into "system settings-display" it
autorecognises the video card as NVIDIA GeForce FX (Generic).

The problem with this is that I cannot use the screen saver as the
screen freezes after about 10 minutes of inactivity and the only
solution is a hard reset.  So I'd like to try the SiS driver.

However..., The SiS driver doesn't work.  I've read the Xorg spec sheet
for the sis driver and selected the SiS 315 (being the correct series
for the 741 chip).  When the X system tries to re-initialise, it does
not recognise the hardware.

I've included X output below and would appreciate any help
Kind regards
Ashley

My xorg.conf is:
