Not only are they limited to SonicWALL's firmware, virtually all of the
generation 3 boxes (SOHO3, TELE3, PRO 100, 200, 230, 300, 330) have
either a MIPS or StrongARM processor with either 16 MB or 64 MB DRAM and
4 MB flash.
Even if it did have an x86 processor (such as the GX series and some of
the current rackmount stuff) there's no way in hell m0n0wall will run -
the current SonicOS images have a cryptographic signature that the
bootloader checks for.
