Your soundcard has an identity crisis and thinks it is an SCSI card. Try
booting with

knoppix noscsi

or some of the other no*-Options that are mentioned in
knoppix-cheatcodes.txt on your CD.

Unless the "jibberish" you also mentioned is some important error
message. Then maybe, you did not tell me the whole truth, and what I
said may be totally wrong.  ;-)
