      Do you have a machine that I could get ssh access to?  If so, I can 
try to build an rpm for the Speakup kernel which you could install 
everywhere.  Also, an SRC RPM would be produced which would show you how I 
did it.

      Any questions, call or write.  Calling will usually get a quicker 
response.  076 6090579 within Eire.
