OK, I don't have a Soekris but I can ask some obvious questions:

o What version of m0n0wall?

o You are using the correct Soekris image?  I thought the Soekris images
had a serial console configured so I wouldn't expect to see any output
on a PC with a monitor.

o Have you attached a terminal to the serial port to check on the boot
