Hi.
When I try to run the boot-up process of the distribution I lost the video screen as there isn't a signal.
My video card is a S3 Sagave4 16 MB of memory.
Is this the problem?

Some of you have encountered the same problem?

Thank you in advance. Best regards. :?:

If during the boot up after the initial knoppix "splash screen" your monitor goes completely dark, try vga=normal as a boot option, ie:

knoppix vga=normal

Unfortunately this cheat-code is not on the <f2> help screen but it is in the cheat-code text file on the CD.
