I didn't know there were any VM's that were accessible.  Which one do you 
use?  I'd like to be able to test my unattended xp install cd's on a VM.

Subject: [bct] IBM Via Voice with Linux

Hi all,
Has anyone here used the Speakup screen reader with the IBM Via Voice
synthesizer under Debian Linux 3.1 (Sarge)?  I want to learn Linux,
and I currently have it running inside of a Virtual Machine, and
whenever I want to use it I have to telnet or SsH into the Linux
machine from my Windows XP machine and use it with JAWS.  I want to be
able to install Linux on my laptop and use it without having to use it
in a VM, but I can't figure out how to compile Speakup as a module (I
don't want it starting up with the system) and I also want to use
software synths because I don't have a hardware one.  If anyone can
help I would really appreciate it.
