I have figured out how to remaster the GRML live cd so that it speaks automatically on boot :)

Assuming you already know how to boot the live CD and mount a USB pendrive:

Type: mkdir /tmp/cd && mkdir /tmp/cd/scripts
Type: cd /tmp/cd/scripts
Type: nano grml.sh
Enter: #!/bin/bash
            modprobe speakup_soft
            loadkeys uk # optional
            exit 0
Press: Ctrl + x, then y to save and close script
Type: chmod 777 grml.sh
Type: cd
Type: grml2iso -b scripts -c /tmp/cd -o grml_vi.iso /lib/live/mount/medium # wait for this to finish

Then copy the iso to usb drive and burn to cd :)
