unable to run knoppix livecd, Graphics problem...? Help this just-born newbie

To all geeks, wizards, and gurus,

When i finally got hold of my new Knoppix livecd and went ahead with installation, it went upto the point, of saying

Boot.... and then, this came up.

PCI unable to handle 64 bit address space
PCI unable to handle 64 bit address space
PCI unable to handle 64 bit address space
PCI unable to handle 64 bit address space

I have a C2D intel CPU, with an Intel DG965RY motherboard. And i ain't that rich to go for anything more than the onboard graphics chip. So my graphics card is what my MoBo gives me. Does this motherboard have issues with linux...?

What could be possibly wrong..?

Please help me. I so badly want to jump onto the linux bandwagon and stop making Bill Gates so damned rich..

But i seem to be running into problems even with a livecd.

I haven't tried installing my any other distros. Haven't downloaded anything else so far.

Oops, and before i become my ungrateful self, thanks to all those who helped me sort out my DR dos muddle, though that's a different story altogether.

Since you don't give the full name and version from the Knoppix cd, I can only suggest the possibility that you are trying to install 64-bit software on a 32-bit system.

I'n mot familiar with the mobo, so I don't know if it's 32- or 64-bit.
