Redhat6.1 boot disks with Speakup don't seem to work with DoubleTalk LT

Hi Vic,
Sometimes you won't get speech when you aren't plugged into ttyS0.  Make
sure your Doubletalk LT is plugged into that port and it should work.  I
have experienced another problem, speech will hang if you leave it on
during the entire initialization process.  However, Kirk's latest
Doubletalk LT driver has cured this.  I would recommend shutting off
speech when it begins to talk and not reanble it until you get to the
login prompt.  Then rebuild the kernel with the latest drivers that are in
the /pub/linux/speakup directory on good ol' bumpy under the name:
