 Subject:  Generic Image Not Booting from Flash Card
 Date:  Thu, 10 Mar 2005 12:37:01 -0500
Howdy,

Downloaded the generic-pc image and did the following:

gzcat generic-pc.img | dd of=/dev/ad0 bs=16k

Works fine, boots fine.  ad0 is our hard drive (IDE).

Then when we try:

gzcat generic-pc.img | dd of=/dev/da0 bs=16k

To go out to a compact flash card, its starts booting, but then errors 
out after the kernel loads saying "Missing config file.  M0n0wall can 
not continue loading" and then shuts down.  Its obviously reading from 
the flash card otherwise it wouldn't boot, but then it seems the system 
looks for a config file that isn't on the image.  Any ideas?

Thanks!

-Matt
