I'm using a Twinhan VisionPlus 1020 card. Unfortunately, this card seems to 
use the same device numbers than some analog cards do, and the driver Knoppix 
loads will hang the system.

I figured out that I have to load the bttv module with these options:
i2c_hw=1 card=0x71

I have no idea on how to do this with Knoppix, but on Gentoo I created a file
"/etc/modules.d/bttv" and put the following in it: 
options bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71
Then run modules-update.

On Fedora, you might want to try to modprobe bttv like this:
modprobe bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71

Hope this helps,
