Today i accidentally booted my laptop with a m0n0wall-cdrom. It has no
floppy attached to it. There are lots of errors about the missing
floppy device, but finally m0n0wall runs on default config.

So the only thing someone needs to do in order to read his config from
cdrom is replace default config.xml on the image with his own and boot
without floppy.
