Of course, there would be numerous differences between the 2 projects.

1. NetServa would use Loo-Nucks. I do prefer a BSD-style system.
2. SmoothWall does not have the polish that m0n0 does, IMO.
3. SmoothWall isn't particularly suited for embedded applications, and 
I would really like a small-sized distro suitable for CF use.

I figure that we could use much of the m0n0 system, such as a good deal 
of the configuration system and boot process, for the new NAS project. 
Is Manuel is interested, of course. I guess if he's not, some of us 
could do it ourselves, but that seems strange to do.
