It was used to be available from ftp://people.redhat.com/jlamb, but I just
checked, and it is no longer there.   I think this finally really means
it was pulled from the Net.

One avaiable solution, which is free is Festival Lite and eflite,
see http://eflite.sourceforge.net/.

Another possibility is the Commercial DECtalk Software engine with
the dtk-soft speech server.  This is available for $50 via online
order.  I'm just not sure if it works under Mandrake, since there were
some library incompatibilities with other distributions (debian) already.
Others might be able to give positive reports about Mandrake and dectalk
