Thanks, Kirk, you were right about copying the System.map file - I copied it
into /boot and the errors went away.
I've booted a few times now and found that SpeakUp can be made to carry on
talking - it seems to depend on when I hit the Control key during system
initialisation - I haven't yet pinned down a recognisable point when it's a
good idea. If I don't press ctrl then SpeakUp stops talking eventually (I
assume a buffer overflow), but it can also clam up if I press it at the
"wrong" time during the start-up process. I'll carry on fiddling and see if
I can pin this behaviour down. I can usually get success after two or three
restarts, so it's not too bad.
My plan for tomorrow is to rebuild the kernel again - firstly to try and get
rid of my i586 errors and secondly to get my rtl-8029 Ethernet card to work.
Thanks again for all the help.

Hi Again Tim: No. That warning is telling you that you didn't copy
the System.map file in /usr/src/linux into either / or /boot after the
compile. It depends on what your distribution is expecting as where
to find the file. It is a warning though and should not cause a
problem running, but you'll want to correct the situation to avoid
continuous messages when running ps and the like.
