What kind of hardware do you have? If it's a really new machine that uses SATA drives, there's a chance that the kernels in those distros do not yet support your SATA controller. Post your hardware and maybe we can help you out a little bit more.

hi there,
take a close look in which modules knoppix has loaded.
you will probably see what is missing in compare with the distros that you mentioned.
