New Installation of Speakup 1.00

I've been out of the loop with speakup and linux for a while and I'm now
trying to get things set up again. 

I'm using Slackware 7.1, which uses the Linux kernel 2.2.16. 

I recall that the first time I did all of this I could never get Speakup
to properly patch and allow me to configure Linux 2.2.16 so that I could
make adjustments to the doubletalk's speech. I downloaded the 2.4.9 kernel
and unpacked it to my /usr/local/src/linux path, but the ./install command
still doesn't patch properly and reports that it is patching 2.2 of Linux,
which is the version that is running. 

When I try to run "make menuconfig" I do not find any of the
"speakup" options there so something isn't being patched properly. I do
know I got around all this and made things work before, but I honestly
don't remember what I had to do.

If someone could help me I'd be very grateful.
