Hi all!

This might help some newbies like me. I tried installing M0n0wall for 5 
days and lost lots of sleep thinking about the problem. I've got a 
pentium III 733 machine  (quite old), cdrom drive, with a realtek8139 
and 3com509 nics. At first I blamed the card for not getting any network 
response from both cards, then the cable, then the ISO version ( sorry 
for that bro). In the end, I got the thing working. My problem was I 
burned the ISO version in a mini CDR (2.5"). When I burned it using a 
regular CDR (5.25"), everything worked beautifully.  Must have been the 
volume allocation description of FreeBSD. (maybe ????).

Right now, I'm controlling an old Apple Airport Graphite on my LAN and 
happily connected through ppoe on my WAN.
