Well, as I said I don't have SATA so I'm getting out of ideas here but you could try:
knoppix26 pci=biosirq acpi=off noapic pnpbios=off

Did you jumper the hd to master???

There's a small plastic thingy with metal contacts called a jumper usually in the middle of the back of a hd (hmm, wasn't that fluent) with 3 possible positions: Master, slave and cable select. Try setting it to master if it's on cable select or slave. While windows happily accepts cable select, linux doesn't allways.
Just grasping at straws really but it's worth a try.

oh duh i knew that. But its already on master. Sorry bout the confusion. I did this:
knoppix26 pci=biosirq acpi=off noapic pnpbios=off
but nothing was different. Sometimes when i do one of them it wont boot up, says somthing is not syncing and it just crashes.

I'm actually not sure if you can get it to work since you probably need to load drivers in a certain order. Things like:
"Failed initialization of WD-7000 SCSI card!"
do not seem very promising.

Have you tried kanotix? Quite like knoppix but being newer than the present knoppix it also has newer drivers. http://kanotix.com
