I don't think that your problems have something in common, due to:

IMHO on Chris' system the CD is never ever being read and therefore
his harddisk system is booted instead.

Chris, any chance you can boot your system with someone in front who
sees whether the grml bootscreen is present at all? swspeak itself
should work just fine, I got some reports that it's working great -
I'll test it on my own as well as soon as I've some spare minutes.
Would be great to know at which stage your system fails to boot.

Darsha: regarding your problem I think it's either a kernel issue, a
problem with the initrd or with syslinux - let's track the problem
down together.
