I emailed Soren at Soekris about this 32/64MB issue because their
net4511-20 units have only 32MB onboard.  He informed me that they will
soon be dropping the net4511-20 base product and supplying the
net4511-30 units - with 64MB RAM onboard.  This was due to a number of
reasons, but is no doubt a welcome change for future net4511/m0n0wall
