The netinst iso available from people.debian.org/~shane/ does have a
speakup-enabled 2.6.8 kernel, which you can get by using the speakup26
target (I.E. speakup26 speakup_synth=xxx).

You'll want to update that kernel image as soon as you can though,
since the cvs version of speakup in that kernel has a broken
cut/paste, which crashes the machine if used, at least on the 32-bit
