I remember hearing of people having trouble installing from Linux, so
try *BSD.

Give this a try: http://chrisbuechler.com/m0n0wall/liveinstaller/ The
download is 56MB. Chris has built an ISO for a CDRom you can boot
FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE then install m0n0wall. Directions are on the page
(he mentioned he would add to the image, not sure if that has been
done yet...)

The disk will have 1.1 and 1.2b2 (according to Chris' site) you can
upgrade to 1.11 or 1.2b3 after you have 1.1 or 1.2b2 up and running.
