 Date:  Sat, 26 Aug 2006 05:59:45 -0700 (PDT)
Hi

Thanks for the feedback.

I apologize for my inaccurate information. The time lapse between the part where monowall hang and
the time when monowall complete the booting process is more like 7 to 10 mins. 

I have also tried to install monowall-pc-cf version to the hard drive. Results are the same and I
have to wait just as long.

I am sure there is nothing wrong with the PC as I can run DamnSmallLinux (DSL) just fine. I can also
boot DOS fine as well.

I still hope I can iron out my current problems.

Here is the output from dmesg:

before i was using a CF card plugged to a usb card reader for m0n0wall. boot
time is around 5mins.

when i changed it to an ide hard drive. boot time is less than 30secs.
