    Hi all,

I'm looking to get started seriously in debian, although I appear to be 
having several problems. First off, my initial hope was to be able to 
work exclusivly in the commandline with espeakup, which I understand 
should be installed by default when using the accessable installer from 
the netinstall. However, after going through the installation, selecting 
standard system utilities, ssh server and web server I don't appear to 
have speech. I do, however have the console beap after logging in which 
suggests to me that the installation was succesfull. I'm half tempted to 
scrap this current instance and reinstall, but my question is do any of 
you have any combinations from that main installation screen that you 
would suggest using?

Thanks much for any help with this.
