If you're just trying to get a platform where you can run Emacs and
Emacspeak then I'd suggest just going with Vinux 5.1. The boot media
will just come up talking.

I'm not a programmer, sorry, not yet a qeast, but Emacspeak both makes sense to me, and makes reading and writing things like documents, emails, and reading books and web pages, with Emacspeak's ways of controlling Eloquence to make content more enjoyable and informative to take in, is like going from black and white to colored TV compared to screen readers which rely on accessibility API's to show information. I'd a qeed Firefox for more demanding sites, like web apps, but that's about it. Wel, either Firefox o ofome. I did try Debian a few months ago, but it could not dtimeect my Wi-fi card. Tce Talking Arch could, I wound up having someone on IRC install it over SSH, but I don't want the people of that IRC server to run out of pajience with me, so I probably won't ask again. So, any other ideas I can try?

I've never seen that happen before, and Googling didn't give any answers, so I'm stuck between Vinux, and Arch. Vinux being okay I suppose, but out of date, and Arch being hard for me to install, without scripts although the ones I know of are broken, but Arch is what I like, because it has anything I ask of it. So I tried installing Fedora a few more times, formatting the drive, but no luck. Then I accidentally pulled the flash drive out of the USB drive for a moment, and when I pushed i

The last time I tried the instructions for installing Arch, I got stuck on setting the clock and such, because the results I got were not the results on the ge, so I'm just not sure what to do.
