    I have EXACTLY the SAME problem...I see everything is fine ( boot from cd...load knoppix linux)..but the screen is just divided into 4 and seems like I need to do some setting on the resolution?

    My config:
    Athlon xp 1800
    Soltek KT266A
    512mb ram
    Geforce 4 4200 128mb
    ** Samsung SyncMaster 191T running at 1280x1024@60hz**

    I think it's sth about the monitor...I tried 'knoppix xrefresh 60' ..and it doesn't work..please help...thx
