I have not tried this feature yet but I want to ask a question for 
troubleshooting.  When your monitor shows "Keyboard: No", what does the 
output to the console show?  Are you sure m0n0wall does not load or does the 
output to the monitor just stop?  If no keyboard is detected then no output 
will go to the monitor, it will all go to the console.
