Can't start Knoppix XServer


I get up to the point where it says Starting X Server... terminate at the end of session... whatever it is that part of the information says (the text right before x server is started).

Startup commands: "knoppix screen=800x600 depth=16"

I'm trying to start Knoppix so I can use qtparted, but you cannot run it if xserver is not running.

However, when I try starting knoppix, it says:

Retrying with XFree86(vesa)...
Retrying with XFree86(fbdev)...
No suitable X-Server found for your card.

The computer im trying to run it on:
amd k6-2 333mhz
aopen ax59pro (via mvp3 chipset)
192mb ram
Diamond Viper V770 32mb (nvidia tnt2)
monitor: Gateway2000 CrystalScan 1024NI

Knoppix detects the video as:
Video is RivaTnT2[NV5], using XFree86(nv) Server.
Monitor is Generic Monitor, H:28.0-96.0kHz, V:50.0-75.0Hz
Using Modes "800x600","640x480"

I'm not sure if Knoppix has nvidia support - try putting nv or nvidia in as the card driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

I tried doing that through the expert config. XServer started, but the display was corrupt/out of sync.

press ctrl + alt + + that'll cycle to the other modes (640x480 may work)
