<P><FONT SIZE=2>Hi Deedra,</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;This won't help you solve your problem much, but i can tell you that</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;speakup's software speech won't work on the livecd. Currently the livecd</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;only supports the hardware synths, and doesn't support the internal</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;decktalk because it requires a seperate program. I just wanted to</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;clarify this for you. Hopefully one of the releng folks can help you</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>&gt;sort this.</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Yes, I realized that the livecd wouldn't support software speech.&nbsp; Software speech is a post-install goal.&nbsp; That's why I used the external DecTalk express for the install.&nbsp; I've got a different system with the internal Dectalk card.&nbsp; I'm going to try the same steps tonight without the dectalk or speech to see if the networking code works in the absence of both.&nbsp; If so, once I get the stage 1 tarball on disk I can try applying the motherboard manufacturers linux drivers for the Intel hardware.&nbsp; If that goes well, then at least the post-install system will be usable.&nbsp; It will also allow me to post a proposed solution along with a bug report.&nbsp; I just don't see this as a speakup problem, although there may be some sort of interaction there (unproven assumption which is probably wrong in the first place).&nbsp; </FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>As an alternative, I could disable the on-board ethernet and use a PCI network card (i've got several laying around).&nbsp; I was just trying to avoid popping the case.&nbsp; That's the main reason I was using the external USB drive bay.&nbsp; BTW, the drive was recognized beautifully.</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>More to follow.</FONT>
<BR><FONT SIZE=2>Thanks,</FONT>
