The Linux OS is working; it's your computer which isn't :D. Have a look at the article in the magazine. It tells you how to give a command to the boot line which will let you specify a video mode. (Search for "Knoppix" on this forum too ... we've had a thread or two which will help you.)

It's just that it is impossible to set up a liveCD version which will handle all possible combinations of hardware. Your video is obviously not one of the chosen. ;-)
