Getting started with Linux

The best place to start is which is the 
home of Speakup, a screen reader for the Linux console.  You probably 
don't want to run a server from an external drive since it'll be 
running 24 hours per day and you can't conveniently boot from USB 
without sighted help to adjust your BIOS.  Another good place is 
blinux-list at which is a mailing list for blind people using 
Linux.  Try and go to Google and search for 
Linux, blind etc.  You might want to look at the orca screen reader 
for Gnome but I don't have a site.  Search the ACB Radio site for Linux, there are many beginner audio 
tutorials that were done in 2000 for Main Menu.  The basics really 
haven't changed since then and that at least gets you started.
