Hey there. Its easy to make the RH 7.1 boot disks talking.
These disks are made so that they support all synths so you'll have to
pass the speakup_syth option like this:
And when you install the system select speakup map instead of US.
What I jsut do is hit t to go to the t maps and then go up twice or
three times to the speakup on.
Also I've been wanting to ask Bill what the speakup-lt map is, but
never got around to it so help on what that one is would be cool.
Anyways when you get down to the lilo section pay attention to when it
asks you for command line options to pass to the kernel. You don't
need to type the append before your options so in the box just go:
That's all that I can really think of that you do different ot get
things to work with speakup and RH 7.1. I've installed it more than
once using this method so it should work nice.
Thanks a bunch Bill.
