One of the posts (I think same post on BSDForums and M0n0wall list)
mentioned cutting the soldered jumper J14. This would make me nervous
- and cause profuse sweating until it booted after cutting...

The posting mentioned near the end that the VGA head is not necessary
as the Serial port does a console redirect (9600, 8N1). The issue
would be to get a m0n0wall generic PC image with serial console -
check Chris Buechler's site http://chrisbuechler.com/index.php?id=19.

I do not have one of these to play with, wish I did. I just wanted to
point out that the Watchdog may cause a problem. Good luck.
