Do you have enough RAM + swap ? You must have a great amount of these.
I have 500 MB of RAM, I added 1 GB of swap (500 MB should have been enough).
The size of RAM+swap must be greater than the size of the file you generate
(the resulting KNOPPIX file of around 700MB).
To create a swap (here of 700MB) without partitionning :
  dd if=/dev/zero of=swap700 bs=1024 count=716800
  mkswap swap700
  swapon swap700
To remove :
  swapoff swap700
  rm swap700
