Ellipticals work better for people with knee problems. Adjust the incline for the best angle for your knees.
If you use an Elliptical machine with movable arms, you will get a upper body workout along with lower body.

Without knowing the nature of your knee problems it is virtually impossible to give an answe as to alternatives. What strength work are you doing to strengthen your musculoskeletal system to the stress of using the treadmill? How long are you spending on the treadmill each session? What is the nature of the discomfort you are experiencing? Answers to questions such as these will give you more valid answers/

I hate treadmills...but I love walking. Have you tried walking out in the real world?

It's not as stressful on my joints as walking on a machine, and is a heck of a lot more entertaining. (I have some crazy neighbors and now I get to see them being crazy everyday as I walk past.)

Have you considered an aerobic workout with a workout dvd like Turbo Jam? That's what I use. Some of the rougher workouts are kind of rough on my knees but they have some lower-intensity ones as well. Look into the Turbo Jam workout DVD that has 5 workouts. Learn & Burn as well as the 20 Minute workout are a good place to start.
