If you're actually going to be using this thing in a "production"
environment" why not spend the $20 or less to find a older pc made in
the last 5 years that boots off cd? I'm constantly being asked if I want
these older computers all of which are capable of booting off cd. 

It just seems like a lot of messing around. I could see if you were just
experimenting with m0n0wall, but, if you plan on actually using it, I
think it would be the smartest decision.

I made a post earlier titled "Booting m0n0wall CD via a MS-DOS 
formatted boot floppy". Has anyone got any suggestions? Someone 
mentioned something about bodging the BTX loader somehow - but I can't 
see that would help with keeping the disk as MS-DOS formatted. Sure, I 
could use SBM then swap with the config disk, but that's no use if I 
reboot the machine remotely, or it goes down from a power cut. 

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
