Re: just a newbi problem, want to use festival, not flite with emacspeak

If you have problems getting stuff off the network, then I
suggest ubuntu is  not for you -- since it comes with a
bare minimum system on the CD and assumes that you *can* get
stuff off the net. I suggest you instal a full-fledged
distribution like FC5 off of a set of CDs or a DVD.
