Could you post the vmx file? 

I got it to boot under ESX Server and display the main menu (yeah). 

Now, I am trying verify that the network cards are working correctly, but I'm not having any luck.
Using the menu, I reset the IP
address to, brought up a windows VM on the same LAN (m0n0WallNat01) with an address of, and pointed the
windows IE browser at It does not connect. I tried pinging, but no response.

Here is what I have in the vmx file for the three NIC cards:

ethernet0.present = "true"
ethernet0.connectionType = "monitor_dev"
ethernet0.devName = "vmnet_0"
etnernet0.networkName = ""
ethernet0.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:b5:53:e2"
ethernet0.generatedAddressOffset = "0"

ethernet1.present = "true"
ethernet1.connectionType = "monitor_dev"
ethernet1.devName = "vmnet_2"
ethernet1.networkName = "m0n0WallNat01"
ethernet1.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:b5:53:ec"
ethernet1.generatedAddressOffset = "10"

ethernet2.present = "true"
ethernet2.connectionType = "monitor_dev"
ethernet2.devName = "vmnet_3"
ethernet2.vnet = "vmnet_0"
ethernet2.networkName = "m0n0WallNat02"
ethernet2.generatedAddress = "00:0c:29:b5:53:f6"
ethernet2.generatedAddressOffset = "20"

I did nothing special to install generic pc m0n0 on ESX. I used
physdiskwrite from a Windows virtual machine to save the disk image in an
extra SCSI harddisk (ESX only supports SCSI disks). Then I mounted it on a
new virtual machine and it worked. It has been online during several moths
with only one fairly serious problem, I have to disconnect all virtual
network interfaces to get m0n0 successfuly booted, I have not found any
reason for this.
