Assuming this is the first 3ware controller in your machine (and
/dev/sda is a different SCSI/SATA or similar controller), try:
smartctl -a -d 3ware,0 /dev/twe0
If you still have problems, you'll probably need a newer version of
smartmontools - obviously under Knoppix this isn't easy, but you can
install packages under a system booted from CD. Something from
install and work fine, but Guido on this list (smartmontools debian
maintainer) could probably be of more help recommending a suitable package.
