Hi, I found that the gentoo live CD does work with dectalk express I typed 
at the boot prompt gentoo speakup_synth=dectlk nox and everything booted ok. 
Partitioning my hard drive with gentoo I can't figure out.  I want my swap 
partition to still be the same but when I tried to recreate the reiserfs 
filesystem I could not find out what to press as the choices are not 
numberd.  How do I go about this and I keep getting stuck in a loop where I 
hit the delete partition and hit no then can't get out of that screen to 
tell the installation how I want the partition.  I want one partition as 
swap and one is / the root.  How in the text based installer-dialog do you 
do these tasks?
