How do I specify "knoppx nomodeset xmodule=nv" booting a live CD?

references online indicate if you're having trouble with nvidia chipsets with Knoppix, then use the boot command:

knoppx nomodeset xmodule=nv

How does one do that with a live cd?

The problem I'm trying to resolve is banding or stripes on the gui objects like the menus and some windows.

Try putting it at the end of the kernel line in the grub menu

When you see grub menu press down arrow key to highlight the line that says kernel and at simply put this at the end of that line

In some menus there may be room for boot options, you can put it there too.

I don't see any grub menu come up as far as I can tell.

I get what I'd call a Knoppix "splash screen" with a picture of Tux and a huge "KNOPPIX 6.4" under that it says
boot:

then there's another brief point where it stops and shows:
root@microknoppix:/#  (I think - it went by kinda fast)

then pops into the gui desktop

boot: knoppix nomodeset xmodule=nv

grrrr... I swear I tried that before posting here and I got a strange reply to it - didn't work. I just tried it again and it took the command and booted. It did not fix my striped windows problem. I'll post a picture. Maybe you can help me with that?
