To be honest, I don't know if there is any documentation.

But when I can't install with speach, at the boot> prompt, if you type:
text telnet ip=192.168.0.2 netmask=255.255.255.0 gateway=192.168.0.1
Assuming that your computer's IP is 192.168.0.2 (or your desired IP) and 
that your gateway is 192.168.0.1, if you have more than one ethernet device, 
you will need an optional:
ksdevice=/dev/eth0
I think that's the right one anyway, I have never looked.

As I say, I have never found any documentation on this installation method, 
but it is popular in the blind comunity. :D

HTH,

The option of a "telnet" install has me mystified.  Can you point me to
some information?  Remember that the installation CD can't get beyond
"linux text"

Yes, it has a NIC, and I do have broadband.
