You'll have to find the max refresh rates (horizontal and vertical) for your make and model of monitor. Google is your friend.

When you boot Knoppix, there's a 'help' screen (I think you hit one of the Function keys to get to it) which tells you how to specify what refresh rates you want for your monitor. I believe you can also set the monitor's resolution before booting Try setting the resolution to 1024x768 or something. Check the help for that too.
