dd, gzcat, et. al. aren't available on the image, though if you have
enough RAM you can probably upload all these things and the image via
exec.php and accomplish this.

if you have physical access to the machine, I'd recommend my live
installer CD - http://chrisbuechler.com/m0n0wall/liveinstaller/ - as
the closest thing to that currently available (though the images are
currently out of date, just load one and then upgrade from the GUI).
