Hi, I am currently using debian etch\ but as not all of the packages I 
want are included in debian by default like autoconf, automake and 
similar packages I need to install them using apt-get.  gcc is another 
example as it is listed as the build-essential package if you really 
want to compile things.  What is the latest version of the gentoo 
installation CD that does not require X windows and has speakup and 
should work with a dectalk express?  I would like to at least try it 
and see what it is like.
