making distros like Asterisk at Home talk from install upthrough daily use

Actually, it's a distribution iso image that contains CentOS, the Asterisk 
software which it compiles after the install reboots the system, and various 
web and console config tools so you don't have to mess with the complex 
config files that often. I would control it remotely, but my other machine 
is XP and Windows Telnet and JFW doesn't work well to edit files on remote 
systems and I never cared for Festival with Oralux. I wonder how I'd throw 
in a talking Kernel and not make the module dependencies not be mismatched? 
I'd rather just install the rest of the package over my Fedora I already 
left on there, but they built it around this distro.
