Why would you need to compile a new kernel in a standard linux

A real linux installation would be the best option if you don't need
If the speakup you mean is the project mentioned here:
then you will need to compile your own colinux with the necessary
speakup patches. I assume that can be done, but as sound transfer is
still problematic in colinux, i recommend to stick with vmware server.
