    How to load non-default (=VESA) video drivers at startup?

    I have problems to boot Knoppix on my notebook.
    I am pretty sure that the reason is the default video driver.
    I encountered a similar problem with GParted LiveCD.
    A workaround in Gparted LiveCD was to select "Run Forcevideo" and select the VESA driver.

    Is something similar possible in Knoppix ?

    If yes: Which command is necessary at the boot prompt (which is successfully displayed)?

    Alternatively is there a way to add an additional video driver into the ISO image of Knoppix?

    My notebook and video card is:
    Samsung X20 Notebook (XVM 1730 V)
    with 128MB Intel Graphic Media Accelerator GMA 900
    with Chipset Intel 915GM/GMS resp Intel 82915GM
