if emacs speak comes with redhat 7.3 by default i.e. its already bundeled
with it what would i need to do to get emacs speak running without a sound
card... that way i know how that stuff works... i have a fairly intense log
of my hardware and the only thing that is flagged with win mswin or windows
is the lucent win modem... i have an ethernet card i use for internet and i
do know that it is usable with unix/linux/whatever because the person that
used it before me had it set that way...

anyways tnx for the help
