<P><FONT SIZE=2>Hi deedra,</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Okay, sorry i should have included complete information in my original query.&nbsp; I have since googled a bit and d/l'ed the tgz from the speakup site and read the readme.&nbsp; The program itself is dtload.&nbsp; It is included in the speakup sources.&nbsp; It is an optional driver for the dectalk pc, and according to the speakup mailing list (may 04) it works with the dectalk pc2 as well, but files have to be replaced which come from DEC (the boards &quot;firmware&quot; files).&nbsp; So, with all that said, I presume I can get there from here with gentoo, i'll just need to use my external dectalk express long enough to compile the additional driver as a module and replace the default files with the equivilents for the pc2.&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>So, now with all that said, does 2004.2 have speakup built-in?&nbsp; Is there anything I should watch out for when compiling mmy own kernel?&nbsp; I assume there's still not an ebuild for a kernel with speakup in it, or is there?</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>The compile shouldn't be too horrible, after all it will be a minimal system for use as a router/firewall.&nbsp; It's also not my normal system so if I have to leave it in a corner compiling for a few days, that's no big deal (except for thunderstorms, ain't summer great?).&nbsp; I won't want much on it to begin with and I may remove most of that so that if it gets hacked they won't have much to work with.&nbsp; In fact i'll probably use a stripped down busybox for the shell and remove everything from /bin and /sbin that I can and have the system still function.&nbsp; As long as I can mount, I can always put the tools I need on cd since I will have physical access.</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Regards,</FONT>
