Short answer, no not really. about the only file that is writeable is
the config.xml. All other files are read only (i think). This allow
for hot/cold shutdown without totally fragging your system. I'm sure
there are many more,...other better reasons as well.

The long answer is yes, but this would require recompiling your own
customized 'fork". Manuel has included documentation at the m0n0 site
which explains how to build, compile and install m0n0wall from
scratch. There is a project called FreeNAS that has taken the
framework (and I say that loosely) of m0n0wall and created a new
project for an open source NAS solution.

Good Luck
