That is where I am headed as well :-)
I want to take a look at prelude sensors and then I will start with
configuring for redundancy.
I am looking at the 4801's as well... right now I am just testing on a 1U
1GHz with cdrom/floppy.

I'm setting up mine. I've got a =very= old notebook (Toshiba T3400CT) that
wasn't doing anything else. I installed FreeBSD 4.8-p13 on it last
night. I'll use com1 for the console and a PCMCIA ethernet for a LAN. The
hacker's guide (http://m0n0.ch/wall/hack/) shows how to set up a PXE boot
and an NFS mounted root, so you only have to burn a CF when you're sure
you've got it right.
Along that line, is anyone working on integrating VRRP (Virtual Router
Redundancy Protocol) RFC-2338 into m0n0wall? If not, I think I'll give it
a go. We'd like to use a pair of net4801s with automated failover for our
I'll grant that with no moving parts, and a hardware watchdog to catch
runaway software, a single net4801 will probably be more than sufficient,
but we have to survive single-point-of-failure (SPOF) by our customers
