You'll like it even more better if you take out the hard drive all 
together.  Set the CD-ROM to be the boot device.  Burn the 
"generic-pc-cdrom" ISO onto a CD-R (those little 8mm ones are very cute) 
and put it in the drive.  Once the m0n0wall is up and running, the CD drive 
spins down and you have no moving parts.  In fact, if you have an old 
(read: slow) enough CPU, you won't even need any fans. It's not going to 
get any more reliable than that.
