Then, to save a of time, install freebsd somewhere. You don't want to
waste to much time finding out which parts you need.


freebsd + src (option 4 in the installer) and svn will do fine.

between a server and the flash image, so you can hack the image and send
the differences to a server. http://subversion.tigris.org/

don't bother, you need at least some basic backup mechanisms. What we
really want is server running freebsd to develop and then have svn on
top of it.

I 'll open up a svn to start with.
Should i can monowall_dev ?
It is easily transferable lateron.

yes, sure!  https://svn.wifisoft.org/node/trunk/base.img I writes to cf
or disk like monowall does. Note that this a current (7.0) image. 
I will build a 6.x image somewhere this weekend. This one will do fine
to play around with ssh, svn etc etc.

oke, pitty
