     The best solution, IMPO, would be to download the ISO images of Red 
Hat Linux 7.2 (Enigma) from  If you're 
determined to use RH7.0,  there are a few solutions.  You can stick with 
2.2.16-22 by using a replacement drivers/char/Makefile and 
drivers/char/main.c that Kirk hacked up for the purpose.  A much better 
solution would be to download all the updates for 7.0 including the kernel 
from RedHat or a mirror and install them.  Then, you can proceed with the 
installation of Speakup using the provided 2.2.19 source.  If you need any 
help with any of the above mentioned solutions, call or write.
