Hi All,

I'm running into a problem installing the RH 8.0 with
I started the install at the prompt with
text speakup_synth=ltlk

I have the lite Talk external synth so this is the keyword I
needed to use.
I get speach all through the boot process, but once that
finishes talking, I get nothing else.

I had my wife check the screen and it shows a blue
background about two thirds of the way down the screen with
black below it.  I have noting else on the scren.

At this point it appears to lockup and I can go nowwhere

I read the howto and the instructions to use from section 4

Any help appreciated
