Exactly.  That's what I meant by "significant hacking", making
m0n0wall work more like a normal FreeBSD install, using a normal hard
drive file system.  m0n0wall was designed to boot from compact flash
and run from RAM, because of the write limitations of CF cards.

You could probably save yourself a lot of time by starting with a
project that's focused towards full hard drive installs, pfsense.
http://pfsense.org  All the work of porting m0n0wall to a normal hard
drive filesystem is already done there.
