RE: Making the access floppy work.
Ok this makes sense. However, when I boot with the boot floppy... I get
no speech (even after inserting the root floppy when the system asks for
it). I have the dectalk express connected to the serial port and have
it turned on. I would like to know what I should do to get this to
work. Either this is a special boot parameter or something else???

the floppies use a speakup-kernel, I'm not sure if you need a special
boot-var as is used for brltty.
No their are no cd-images as of yet with access-support.
I made one myself but only with brltty.
You need to build a custrom-kernel to get that support on a cd.
