The emacspeak install itself should not be a problem.

When installing Linux and selecting what packages to install
make sure you pick all emacs related packages 
--including the emacs lisp libraries  --redhat tries to tell
you they are optional--

2) As for ViaVoice 
(likewise for the rest of this)
I suggest you pull down the emacspeak distribution before
the install fest and look through it --
there is a file called Notes in the linux-outloud directory
that tells you what else you need and where you can get them
--including the Viavoice rpms.

Finally, sound card support on laptops under Linux an be
iffy  to avoid embarassing yourself make sure that your
laptops sound card is supported *before* the install fest.
