 Subject:  pb10 is out (CD-ROM version available)

pb10 is up, and the promised CD-ROM + floppy disk version is finally
available for downloading, so m0n0wall is no longer for net45xx users
only. :) Please see the homepage for detailed installation instructions.
It should work on all standard PCs with a BIOS that is recent enough to
correctly support the El Torito CD-ROM booting standard. No hard disk is
necessary, and the CD may even be removed after booting (although this is
not recommended).

Changes in pb10:

- 1:1 NAT support
Requires a static "primary" WAN IP address; theoretically it should work
with PPPoE/PPTP (but not DHCP) on WAN, too (I haven't been able to test
it, though), so DSL accounts that have a static routed subnet may be able
to use this feature (despite the warning). If that works for you, please
let me know.

- CF card (or floppy disk) is no longer remounted (for writing) with mount
-u ..., but instead completely unmounted and remounted again (as mount -ur
does not flush the cache properly and sync doesn't help either)
