If you enjoy the life of a masochist, then this should be no problem for
you. A complete recompile of all source code is required as m0n0wall is
compiled for the i386 platform, not the Sparc platform.
I'd say there'd be a couple of days to achieve this, then a lot of time
trying to work out why certain bits no longer work. Then maybe a week
or two sorting out the remaining issues. Once this has been done, then
you will need to go through much of this - but mainly the recompiling -
every time Manuel releases a new version.
Personally, I'd toss the Sparc, buy an Intel 4-port NIC, and use that.
