Confirmed! I have been running monowall and pfsense on a few of these 
units for quite some time now. I've used both the Firebox I and the 
Firebox FB100 successfully.. They generally run 266mhz Cyrix CPUs with 
32MB of RAM(EDO SIMMs). The nice thing however is that the board has 
slots for both SIMMs as well as DIMMs so you can easily upgrade the 
memory. Not all of these boxes include the flash module as the article 
writers unit has. As far as I know, the software for the Firbox was run 
from the BIOS and configuration was stored on floppy or flash. For units 
without flash, I've used either a compactflash to IDE adapter or simply 
put in an old hard drive where the floppy drive was.


Both of those sites have information on the same units. The only problem 
I have with them is the wonderful lights on the front that don't do 
anything at all! On one unit, the lights are all lit up all the time. On 
another unit, they are all dark except the power light. It would be nice 
to see a monowall mod that would control the front panel. Someone has 
written custom software to do this but has not given the source for it 
and does not respond to my emails. ;-)
