lol! ahem yes ducky, or better still put speakers with volume control
knobs in both so you learn which is working smiles.
Which I have done.

Well since in this case I must have speech sound to do the install fresh
stale, or moldy biology project, clearly I may have a situation.
Neither card is speaking.
To avoid the possible volume issue, I am using speakers and headphones
that have their own volume controls on them. no speech when following
Samuel's steps for loading
speech. There are some threads on sound and wheezy on the blinux list,
but I have not read those yet this morning.

According to the debian install manual, the installer has the ability to
locate and identify your hardware, regardless one would think of
the presence of another operating system, drivers and the like.
In the case of my sound cards for example, even before well doing much of
anything aside from turning the machine on, you can hear the soundblaster
awe 32 card turn on for lack of a better word. the sound of the
card's being active can be detected, same when the machine is t urned
pro live one is a pci card likely requiring more playing, it does not
produce such a system sound, so I have focused more on the awe, while
keeping speakers in both.
No, you don't need a monitor connected to your video card.
Then I know that is not the cause of the issue then.
