I used s at the boot prompt. I tried hitting enter after boot with no luck. I got in with ssh and I can post the hole error but at the end it says that if I do espeak "test" it can't connect to the jak sever or that the jack server can't be started. And a lot of alsa errors. Will post the houtput of the error tommorow.

You didn't get specific about your install, but let me guess what 
1) you installed using a hardware synthesizer and didn't put the 
necessary parameters into lilo or grub when you had the opportunity, 
speakup.synth=ltlk would be one possible example
2) you used s at the boot prompt and got speech on the sound card all 
the way through the install, when you boot your system and the disk 
stops hit enter once and wait you may find you actually do have speech 
after all.
