Hi Frans,

Given the known bug(s) concerning FreeBSD in conjunction with a net4801, I
don't think that the generic-pc image would boot. Soren told me a while
ago that he might send me a net4801 when they are ready so I can make a
specific m0n0wall image for it. At the moment, I'm working on a port of
FreeBSD to another SC1100 based board; interestingly, m0n0wall boots OK on
that board without any kernel patches - except for the fact that FreeBSD
seems to be unable to print any console messages via the serial port. I'm
still investigating...
