I'm going to give pfsense a try and report back. The motherboard
manufacturer reported they only support FreeBSD 4.7 and above. Since I don't
have a CD or floppy drive on this box I'm going to flash the IDE module with
pfsense and see what happens.
Lesson for everyone: if you are building a new box add CD drive even if you
don't plan to use it regularly. It makes trouble shooting a lot easier.
