As far as I know there is no way to unpack and edit the images in
windows. My Linux stupidity is showing through here, but if there is a
'vn' device equivalent then a quick edit of my unpacker script should
get you going (http://mrkasai.undergroup.com/m0n0wall). Otherwise I
would find a tired old box and throw FreeBSD 4.9 on it. That's the
easiest route, and the route the hackers guide
(http://m0n0.ch/wall/hack/) was written for.
Hope that helps,
