Hey there Mike, although Kenny is correct in saying that you don't 
necessarily need speech-dispatcher for playing multiple streams, the 
reason you're not seeing sd in the choice of speech systems is 
because speech-dispatcher is no longer started as a system-wide 
service in Hardy.  Easiest way to get it to start automaticly is to 
go to system>preferences>sessions and add speech-dispatcher as a 
startup programs.  Once you reboot after making this change, you 
should see it as an available option.  I hope that helps.
