Actually, the problem you saw was present only in a few releases of
Knoppix where the lubkudzu library has changed. The firewire module
unloading failed there, and the detection did not terminate.
Interrupting hwsetup would still leave the system unusable, so I'm not
going to tell you that you can interrupt the init-scripts with
ALT-SysReq-K because it just wouldn't help.

Please try to get ahold of version 10-10-2002, where the error is fixed.
