root password for ethereal
You have an interesting situation. I don't believe Klaus Knopper has given out the root password for his 3.7 live cd, and the fact that even the "ethereal as root" menu selection asks for a password may be a bug in the distro.
What I suggest is this : Knoppix Live CD has a "root shell" which is different from the Terminal shell located on the task bar at the bottom of the knoppix 3.7 screen. Look for the Penguin at the lower left of the screen and click on it once. At the bottom of the window which opens you will see a choice for the "root shell"; click on that. A console window will open showing the user as "root@tty1" or something like that. This is the only way I know to access the live cd programs as root.
Once you are in the root shell, simply type ethereal and press enter. Ethereal should start from the console. Hope this helps.
