I'll have to second that. If you need frequent reboots, there is some other

Why? I haven't had any problems with the fact that the lease database 
is lost on reboot. The ISC DHCP server, as used by m0n0wall, also 
attempts to ping an IP address before assigning it to a client to 
minimize the possibility of conflicts. And besides, none of the box 
firewall products I know save the DHCP lease database on reboots.

I think it's enough that the DynDNS information is stored on flash 
(which is absolutely necessary to keep DynDNS from banning people due 
to abusive updates). I'd prefer that no dynamic information be stored 
on the CF at all to make sure that m0n0wall behaves in exactly the same 
way each time it boots as long as the user doesn't modify the
