Debian (not Ubuntu) solution for SiS 771/671 video chipset

I've been given a Packard Bell MH35 notebook computer on which I installed Parsix (a slightly user-friendlier Debian). The notebook has the xorg-xserver-video-sis package installed, but it doesn't seem to be doing much with it - xrandr only lists 640x480 and 800x600, not even 1024x768. The screen is actually 1280x800.

I've Googled for this and there are several solutions for Ubuntu systems, but I haven't found anything for Debian that was even remotely recent.

Any idea how to fix this?
