Ah, I see. I don't really know anything about Knoppix except that it runs from CD. With most distros you have the choice of graphical or text based installations. I know Knoppix doesn't exactly "install" but is there anyway to get it to use a text-based method of startup. I assume it must write some files to the disk and maybe you could edit them and correct your graphics problem if you could just get started at all. And, as mentioned, you could go on a driver hunt. Or failing that, try another distro or change your hardware, I guess. Good luck.
