I had a SIS 530 onboard video card, worked great in windows 98 and even
linux, however not so good in win16.  I had problems as you described.  I
found the 16 color SVA driver to have the best stability in WFWG311...  Odds
are you *could* disable onboard video and run a different card if you
choose...  in all honesty you will still have things that do not work
properly...  On my board w/ SIS 530 the blue screen a death never shown well
enough to be read...

Sorry to say but you are pretty much out of luck...
