Knoppix 6 Live CD - Can't get Cube to work

I'm booting from a 6.0 Live CD, and everything seems to load normally to LXDE desktop. The 3D cube was already selected active in the compiz settings, but I only get the standard 2-d "rectangle" workspace switcher when I change workspaces with CTRL-ALT-ARROWS. CTRL-ALT-MOUSE1 does nothing.

Is there something I need to do to fully activate the cube and other 3D options? Did lots of searching but the only thing coming up is either getting compiz started (which it already appears to be) and then selecting the preferences to get the 3D options working (and these options are already selected.)

Video card is Nvidia 6800GS AGP 256MB. Is there something else I need to do or try? Thanks! -jon

Can you supply a link to the Live CD you are using so I can download? I want to see what you may be experiencing and if I can help.

I downloaded it through bitTorrent - here is the link to the page with the torrent (which itself is linked from official knoppix site.)

The actual file name is 'KNOPPIX_V6.0.1CD-2009-02-08-EN' if that helps at all.
