I take it you did not read the XFree86 documentation then.
If you did you would have found the following paragraph

   VideoRAM size 
      The SiS chips can only directly address 4096K bytes of video RAM.
      Some video cards using these chips are shipped with additional
      video RAM. The videoRAM must be explicitly limited to 4096 for
      those cards. Attempting to use the additional RAM leads to a
      variety of scrambled screen artifacts.
(To find that text go to http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.1/ and click on
"Information for SiS users".)
