Use Chris's Live Install disk found here:
http://www.chrisbuechler.com/index.php?id=17 This does not require
downloading anything until after you get m0n0wall installed - you will
need to upgrade the firmware to a more recent version (disk has 1.11 and
some beta 1.2s)

I believe the most common error is to specify ad not ad0 on the
following line:

    gzcat /usr/m0n0wall/generic-pc-1.11.img | dd of=/dev/ad0 bs=16k
                                                         ^^^ here

I believe ad is the disk and ad0 is the partition - I may be wrong on
this part (someone correct me...)
