IBM ViaVoice for Linux.
It works well on relatively newer CPUs (400+ Mhz -- this is one program
that *does* use a lot of cycles), theres two support mailing lists that
are well-staffed by IBM folks (the VV developers), and it works well
once you train it for your voice.
Note that it is picky about your sound card and driver. You'll need a
combination that supports certain audio modes. In some cases, you may
have to purchase a new sound card (but they are cheap).
