	Hello all.  I am new to linux so sorry if I'm asking questions that 
have been answered before.  I am having trouble getting festival and 
dectalk to work.  I have installed festival but it doesn't seem to 
wan't to talk.  I am using Deabian linux 3.1 sarge with the Speakup 
curnal Version 2.6.  I downloaded festival from debian using apt-get 
to download and install the package but it doesn't want to talk.  My 
sound is working because I can play a CD from the gnome desktop.  I 
also purchased a copy of Dectalk rt.  I have unpacked the file but I 
can't run the installer.  Is there a spesific directory I need to 
unpack the files into in order to get the installer to run?  If your 
needing information on the soundcard, it's a soundblaster live value.  Thanks
