FC 8 Questions

The SpeakupModified already provides kernels for Fedora 8 patched with
Speakup. We provide them as standard Fedora rpm files to make
installation easy for you. Is there some particular reason you think you
need to roll your own, instead? If so, get ready for a very steep
learning curve and a lot of frustration. I will back out of the way, if
you're really just into learning to patch and build kernels. But, if you
just want a talking Werewolf, that's much easier and we will help.
