Uh??  What was speaking?  The audapter, or your sound card through some
speech synthesis?

??!!?? In f8.txt, I can only read
Use Speakup                             speakup.synth=driver

and nothing about the graphical install.

In a word: I'm lost in what you are saying, that doesn't match what I'm
reading at all.  Could you please explain exactly what you have done?
(which CD image you booted, what you typed, what produced speech, etc.)

The problem is that if everybody acts like that, the problem just
_won't_ be fixed...
