I hate to say this, but that's not really a topic relevant to this list, 
you should try posting it to a Knoppix list or a hardware list.

Having said that, here's some quick tips:

First off, in a post like this, you might want to actually include the 
error that you're getting when you try to boot.
Your 'old server' might have a CD rom that's unable to read burnt CDs 
(or possibly just unable to boot off of burnt CDs). 
Try booting a different computer with the KnoppMyth Cd in the drive, 
just to be sure the CD is working. 
If it does, the CD isn't the problem, it's your server's CDROM Drive, or 
something else particular to the server.

If you have further problems with this, please send it to a KnoppMyth 
mailing list, or to a related list.
