Installing FC2 with BRLTTY.

And i also believe I've just proven my theory.
I made a brltty.iso from the boot.iso that is currently on the speakup 
site, dated oct. 7. This brltty.iso, if given both speakup and brltty 
parameters, boots both but then the first iso of the speakup-modified cd 
set which I downloaded a few weeks ago and which I believe was dated with 
a september date is not recognized because it does not match the boot 
media--the brltty.iso made from the later boot.iso.

I just downloaded and burned a FC2-i386-disc1.iso from the speakup site, 
dated Oct. 11, but apparently part of the same set as the boot.iso i 
downloaded. After booting of the brltty.iso from october, this 
FC1-i386-disc1.iso is recognized as a fedora cd and the first step 
(testing for integrity of the cd) can be initiated. Hence my statement 
that whenever you update your speakup-modified isos, you must also make a 
new brltty.iso to match, using the current boot.iso. I hope this clarifies 

Also be aware that a braillified iso can also be made using the first disk 
in the set and i believe also the rescue iso. So it's possible to make a 
braillified FC2-i386-disc1.iso and bring up speakup and/or brltty with it 
and not have to change cds to start installation.
