 The developers have asked me to sho how big the software is, and I have
 done that.  Basically, if you don't include alsa support, it is
 somewhere around 3 mb or so.  We will need alsa support as well for the
 software speech, but I do not know how much space that will take up.

My goal is to get the software on all of our media and not just the live
cd.
