OK, a little more information on this beast, since I finally have time
to work on setting it up.
This is almost entirely pc compatible hardware. The custom bios
software redirects standard console to the serial port by default
(this is the same behavior you see with the soekris boards for
example). This means that the stock generic-pc image works without
modification (no need to set the combios thing).
There is room for mounting 2 harddrives. There is a floppy drive
connector on the motherboard. Theoretically, you could mount a cdrom
drive and floppy drive internally for a completely "enclosed" system.
I wouldn't do this, but it should be possible.
I mounted a 24M flash ide drive inside, so the only moving parts are
the little cpu fan and the huge squirrel cage fan at the rear of the
case. I also slapped a second 128M DIMM that I had lying around into
the second memory slot.
I modified the case to put a netgear ga620 gigabit ethernet card into
the pci slot. Turns out this does work as a pci slot (unlike the
tivos for example). I cut a notch in the front of the chassis, and
also into the front facia, to mount this card. I used some foam
insulation stuff to keep the card from hitting the case and shorting
out. I tie-wrapped the board to the main board to keep it from
slipping out of the slot. This isn't as bad as it sounds, it actually
looks rather good and is good and secure.
I scraped the default logo off the front of the facia, and put a
m0n0wall logo there instead.
m0n0wall 1.2b2 works great on this hardware. It even recognizes the
netgear gig card (thanks manuel!).
