Try pressing control-alt-f1 and see if you have speech at a console.
If so, you can sign on and modify your runlevel in /etc/inittab.
Have not installed a Fedora for years, so things might have changed.

I can install the minimum Fedora system minus the graphical packages with no problems. It boots into a console and all seems well. Problem is that when I re-install the system and select all packages including graphical packages, it only asks for the first 4 cds and then after I follow all steps to prevent it from loading the initial first start graphic mode, it does not speak. One question is, does the installation ask for all 5 cds? Also, should I just install minimum and use Yum to update all packages instead? Is 10gb enough memory for everything and is that why I can not get the system to speak when I install all packages?
