I just burnt Knoppix 5.1 DVD to disc. I have a 19" LCD that runs native on 1280x1204 but when I boot up knoppix it sets to 1204x768 and I can't set it any higher. I found this odd since I thought Knoppix had the best hardware detection of all the distros because when I pop in Ubuntu it boots to the correct resolution immediately. Anyway help is appreciated
Thanks in advance.
I think there's a cheatcode you can use before the CD begins to fully boot. Check the different options available by F-key right after the CD starts to boot, but before it goes to the desktop.
Here's are a few cheatcodes:

Thanks Ozar, that seems to have gotten it working. I still have some minor issues that don't bother me that much for my purposes but if there are any answers that would be great:
1) Is there anyway I could get Knoppix to boot like that without having to type the cheat code? It's not a big deal just wondering.
2) Certain patches of my screen are crystal clear while others are blurry. Is that a driver issue or something?
3) My screen is off center and I have to adjust the Horizontal position to get it to fit properly. Again this isn't much of a big deal.
4) When scrolling down web pages or any other window the display is very jerky moving in an awkward way. Now I am almost positive this is a driver issue.
Again these aren't huge concerns but any advice would be nice.
