I'm not sure what you mean by having accessibility installed.  If you mean 
speech, I don't.  Are there other changes I could make to make the box 
more useable?  One thing, for example, when I log in with my terminal 
program, I don't see a way to distinguish files from folders.  I'm still 
looking for a terminal program if anyone has any ideas.  Thanks for the 
urls, I'll give those a look, and for reasons mentioned in other posts, 
will likely go with fedora.
