Unhappy Knoppix boots....sorta

There seems to be a problem everytime I try to boot Knoppix STD, or the new KnoppixMame live versions of Linux. They start to load, but after a while the screen goes blank. It does not recognize the exact model of my Nvidia FX 5200 although it recognizes that it is from Nvidia. Also, this may have something to do with the fact that the Lilo bootloader from Mandrake is still loaded on my system. Can anyone help me with my two problems?

1. After somewhat loading Knoppix, the screen goes completely blank, and the screen does not recieve a signal.
2. I don't know how to delete the bootloader, and I only have the first CD of Mandrake, and don't know where my XP discs are.

Thanks so much for any reply,
A Helpless Newbie.

If you wish to e-mail me the solution, my email is
