I have an Asus laptop with SiS M650 video board.
With linux ( ubuntu ) I have not DRI support for this SiS hardware.


PC-BSD:
ls /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri

i810_dri.so
mga_dri.so
radeon_dri.so
unichrome_dri.so
i830_dri.so
r128_dri.so
savage_dri.so
i915_dri.so
r200_dri.so
sis_dri.so
mach64_dri.so
r300_dri.so
tdfx_dri.so

For more information about supported cards look here: http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/
My Radeon 9600Pro card works just fine with r300_dri driver. If you not satisfied with default PC-BSD Xorg configuration then you can generate new config file yourself:

Go to single user mode:
# shutdown now
# Xorg -configure
# cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf

edit to suit your needs and don't forget to add fonts directories from /etc/X11/XF86Config file:
# less /etc/X11/XF86Config
# ee /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# exit

enjoy.
