Thank you for the assistance,
Since the last email I installed FreeBSD 4.9, installed the ports I needed,
unpacked the .img using your script, edited my configs as I wanted, and
repack them into an image (also using your script). When I try to recreate
the image with -x it runs and creates an image file, I can load this image
to a CF card using the physdisk util on Windows, but I never get any
response from the firewall for a ping / etc after a reboot. I did not change
anything significant, as I just wanted to test. Any ideas?

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,
