That sucks, It's running off a HD too so now i got to haul it up from the basement, connect a
montior, keyboard to it and redo the HD image.

Ah well

  IIRC, the problem with having less than 64MB RAM is that there isn't sufficient space for a
running m0n0wall image, plus the overhead required to update the firmware (accept the upload,
uncompress it, wirte it to permanent storage, and update the config file).  Again IIRC, with 48MB
your only choice is to do raw installs rather than GUI-based updates.

    The ram would do it. It only has 48 megs of ram and the b7 only used 84% of it. Anyways to set
m0n0 to ignore the memory size?

    I just made a test.img and got the error you spoke of.  I do hope there is a way to set m0n0 to
ignore the memory issue.

         The following input errors were detected:

            a.. The uploaded image file is not for this platform (generic-pc).

      Argh.  Just to see whether anything at all is working, why don't you try upgrading using some
other file?  In other words, don't feed the m0n0wall a correct 1.2b8 image.  Instead, feed it some
bogus file of any length (I used a text file with a dozen or so lines). A few seconds after
selecting "Upgrade firmware", the page should reload with a red/pink band near the top, with this
text:

        a.. The uploaded image file is not for this platform (generic-pc).
      If you don't get that message, the problem likely isn't with the upgrade procedure.  If you do
get this message, read on.

      Hey, how much RAM does your m0n0wall have?  I seem to remember reading something about
upgrades failing if you have less than 64MB RAM.  Furthermore, maybe it's time for you to mention
platform details: SBC or PC (speed, etc.),  HD size, etc.
