If you have a FreeBSD machine (or can install into a virtual machine etc) 
there is a script called workon.sh that allows you to do this. You should be 
able to find it here:


The scripts unpacks a m0n0wall image so that you can edit files (such as the 
xml config file) and when you are done the scripts repacks the image for 
you. You can then install (dd) this image to CF/HD.

I've used this to create a custom image for some of our devices so that even 
if reset to factory defaults the network cards still come up correctly and 
with sensible default IPs. The trick is knowing in advance what the network 
cards should be configured as in the xml!

Wait a minute.....Maybe, if I insert a (working) conf into an iso, and
boot from a cdrom (instead of an imaged drive), I can then dd m0n0wall
to the built in flash?

Does the firebox support booting from cdrom?
