Hi Zack,

The difference with the baselayout comes with baselayout-2.0.0, which is
~masked right now.  Basically, the init system gets reworked in that
version.  But, for now, if you are running the stable baselayout, just
put the module in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and you will be
fine.

No, you do not need to be running the latest kernel before you emerge
speakup, just make sure that the /usr/src/linux symlink points to the
latest version of the kernel.
