I'm running a m0n0wall somewhere on an old Canon 8MB card... it works fine.
I guess 16MB will give you plenty (11MB) of space to let the image grow in
the future.

Is there a setting in the menus for this?
On the other machine, a FreeBSD machine, what would need to be done to
receive/accept the logs?

Given that no logs are required should a 16MB card be enough then? any
possibility the system will ever grow above 16MB.. 32MB cards are so close
to the 16MBs that I am wondering if should get a 32MB card.
