Thanks for the info. I ; will check out the names you mention. I do need 
speech output from the go. You can obviously get the startup stuff since it 
save ti but if you've got somethign like a dodgy fstab, then  your 
screwed. You need to fix it and remount the disk. since speakup patches ther 
kernel and is built in your goign to know that you need to remount your disk 
change the kernel or whatever. Also for recovery/restore software speech 
synthesis takes ashitload of space and processing power and if your needing 
to do stuff on older pcs is a bit of  a problem.
