Well, Janina, you won't find out by me if you're wrong because I suspect 
you are right.
I went ahead and followed the steps for turning off firstboot and kudzu 
and cups and my machine booted fine. But due to the fact that i hadn't 
noticed I had the caps lock key on when I typed my root password, my caps 
and lowercase password characters were reversed and i couldn't log in; 
fortunately the three-finger salute worked. Then I used the braillified 
disk so I could access the first cd as a rescue disk and was able to set 
up brltty at boot and change the run level etc., and when I finished i was 
able to boot and figure out my login problem. I think I probably had an ok 
install with speakup too; i'm sure there must have been a minor mistake 
that kept it from talking and I don't think it was booting completely 
because I got beeps when trying to log in, but this way I'll be 
well-versed in FC 
installation. I will probably do it again eventually because I never did 
manage disk druid and finally just allowed the automated 
partitioning--yuck!!! So i'll probably go in and wrestle with it again
