    fuzzy screen on bootup


    Hello,

    I am trying to run knoppix 3.7 from disc on a pentium2 (maybe a i386) computer with 6g hd. When I boot up, my screen is all fuzzy and totally unreadable. I have no idea whats wrong here. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

    Either low resolution monitor or poor graphics card.

    I've never used knoppix but if you can manually configure the kernel then try turning off frame buffer support. If you can do this this may help.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
