Hello list!
I would like to try develop m0n0wall but having problems
getting started. Have read the Hackers Guide but I cant
really figure out how it works. I would like to develop on
my laptop, booting FreeBSD4.10-STABLE. I have figured
out that I need to recompile my kernel with vn and also
build pxeboot. And here comes the first questions:

1) I dont have any /tftpboot directory. Am I supposed to install
anything?

2) As I want to develop on my laptop I guess I need to install
DHCP server on it and just plug a network cable between my
WRAP and the dev-system (laptop)?

3) Continuing reading the hackers guide: Prepare the DHCP server.
I need to set som entries in the dhcp record for the target (in my 
case wrap). It needs the server adress to the tftpserver. Isnt this
the same server as the DHCP runs?

4) What am I supposed to do with the wrap system? Cant 
figure it out...

Some help and I would be happy!

Regards,
Patrik
