Hi,
    Hm.  I managed to follow most of what you said, though your comments 
about different versions of Baselayout are a little confuxing to me.  I 
didn't know there were different ones.
    As for Speakup, I wonder if I can do this before I need to reboot the 
newly installed system according to the handbook.  Does that Gentoo-sources 
kernel need to be the running one before I emerge speakup and all that?
Thanks for your help.  It's very much appreciated, and I guess I just need a 
little bit more clarification--I remember things being ~-masked before, I'll 
have to see what is this time.
Best,
Zack.

Zack.
