Here is the recipe (please share it in the mailing list - I am not
Write your m0n0wall image (the Generic-PC one, very important) to your
CompactFlash card.
Now you have to modify the filesystem on it (create a tiny file at the root)
with these simple steps.
Download and run the excellent "m0n0wall Live Installer", by Chris Buechler:
Boot it (I use VMware and I connect my USB CF card reader as a "Physical
Disk", seen as ad0 in BSD) and use the following commands to enable the
Serial Console:
camcontrol devlist
atacontrol list
mkdir /mnt/cf
mount /dev/<device name reported by atacontrol or camcontrol> /mnt/cf
echo -h>/mnt/cf/boot.config
umount /mnt/cf
Now your Generic-PC m0n0wall image is "Serial Console" enabled.  :-)
Connect to your PDS with a null-modem cable and run your favorite Terminal
Emulation program at 9600n81.
