I have tyhe netbook able to boot from the usb, now. When I use a flash
drive with the standard Karmic, I can boot, but am not able to do an
accessible login. that is, the "enter, f5, 3, enter, enter" sequence,
does not give me an accessible login with Orca talking. I can manually
launch Orca. I'm taken through that setup. When asked to login again,
I use "ubuntu", with no password. The login never happens. Once, the
login happened, but I could not get speech out of Orca.
In case it makes a difference, I used unetbootin to create the usb
volume from the '.iso' image.
Perhaps, I did something wrong in unetbootin? I find that program for
Win almost inaccessible. Is there a beter utility? Is there a better
Linux image I should use?
