More Problems Installing Speakup

Okay, guys, either I am more of an idiot than I think, or there is
something wrong with the installation script used to patch the kernel.
Maybe I should stick to C.
I believe I know what is happening, but after looking through the script,
I'm not sure where it is breaking down--all of the expected directories
(/usr/src/{linux,linux-2.4.20,speakup,speakup-1.00}) exist.

I pulled the CVS speakup as directed, resulting in the following directory

BUGS         cvsversion.h   speakup.c            speakup_dtlk.c
COPYING      diff-v22/      speakup_acnt.h       speakup_dtlk.h

Makefile     genmap.c       speakup_audptr.c     speakupmap.c
TODO         install*       speakup_bns.c

checkin*     patchlist-v24  speakup_dectlk.c
checkout*    patchlist-v25  speakup_drvcommon.c

Upon doing the install with the "install" script, I get this:

Patching version v24
cp: cannot stat `speakup': No such file or directory
