Hi, you will need to modify your /etc/grub.conf. As an example I will 
place my grub.conf in this message for example perposes.
Hope this helps. What you will see is a speakup startup followed by an 
normal startup without speakup for cases when speakup is not  desirible  
such as using my Dectalk express with emacspeak or testing the 
dectalk driver, etc.
