Did you ever have any luck getting a m0n0wall image onto your net4526?

I have a net 4526 like yours, and am having the same difficulty.  Did 
you ever have any success?  I set pxeboot and tftp according to the 
"m0n0Wall hacker's guide"  and the device successfully dhcp's an address 
and seems to try to boot off the image I put in /tftpboot on my BSD 
(4.10) box, but it always fails at this point with the following message:

At this point  life stops, as the board does not respond to any attempt 
to interact  with the monitor  via the terminal.

Any info would be appreciated.
