Hi people, it might be worth reinforcing your comments about having 
to specify the serial port.  I have a Dectalk multivoice (dectalk 
external) and although speech starts when the dvd is booted with the 
correct syntax, I had to go into grub.conf and manually add the 
serial port on the command line, so as the system will start speaking 
from the installation.
