Thanks for the info about /proc/speakup. I'll try to hack this into
base-installer; it should show up tomorrow after the mirror sync if you
want to try a new install then.

I think you can work around this problem by doing an expert mode
install. That will prompt you with a long list of kernel images to
install, and the speakup kernel should be in that list.

Thanks for testing the speakup images -- few people do.
