You can use the very same live CD on one machine and it works but it 
does not work on another machine? That strikes me as very strange. There 
has been a bug in speakup for a long time where it can't allocate the 
serial port because the kernel says it's in use. For years, people have 
been hacking the kernel code to bypass the problem. But if the very same 
CD works on one computer and not on another, this is not that.
