i guess this should be considered a "bad answer" from the system:

hinting towards a very damaged HD!

What does dmesg say about finding any HD?

My dmesg tells me
hda: SAMSUNG Serial number, type
hda: max request size ...
hda: hda1 hda2 hda3
ie some information about the disk and it's partitions.

If the disk is detected by Knoppix you should also find your partitions in the /etc/fstab Knoppix created for you.

Maybe the cable is slightly loose. You could try to carefully check if they are fixed.
