http://www.grml.org/ has an iso file for download. It's a livecd that can
also be used to install linux if you like it. Try booting and when the
disk stops for a few seconds type grml swspeak then hit return. If you
have a sound card with active speakers you'll hear a message saying grml
finished booting and telling you to type swspeak again. This is only
necessary if linux isn't installed on the hard drive. Type swspeak again
and you'll have speech.
