I've got a question again :)

I get the mistake, which is described in the FAQ under my Knoppix 

>Why can't the linker find "vga"?

>This error typically looks like this:

For Knoppix boots from CD, I don't think it is not possible to install 
such a package in this path. How can I get this working? (or is there any 
other Unit that allows the use of a PutPixel function in an easy way?
A special GTK Graphic Widget was good, too.)
