The problem being reported in this bug report is a technical support
request due to misconfiguration of the X server, and is not a bug
being reported. You should be using the "sis" driver, not the
"vesa" driver. The "vesa" driver is also unsupported by Red Hat
and provided only as a convenience to users in hopes it works if

are not fixable by Red Hat, because the "vesa" driver uses the
video BIOS entirely, and we can't fix broken BIOS code.

After doing that, and trying again, if you have problems and need
further assistance, please join firstname.lastname@example.org, or
one of the other Red Hat mailing lists, or XFree86.org mailing lists
and post your problem there, and someone in the community might
be able to provide technical support.
