Then I'm pretty sure they're selling something that isn't going to boot.  :)

1.2x doesn't boot at all, or even apparently attempt to boot.  Hangs after:

PC Engines ALIX.2 v0.92
640 KB Base Memory
261120 KB Extended Memory

01F0 Master 044A SanDisk SDCFB-512
Phys C/H/S 993/16/63 Log C/H/S 993/16/63

Tried multiple CF cards, no difference.

1.3b4 boots, but panics at boot time after USB initialization. I know
what that is, pfSense had the same until ehci was removed from the
embedded kernel. I believe that was supposed to have been fixed
though, I'll have to check into that.

The board definitely works though, it works fine with pfSense.
m0n0wall 1.2x is apparently a no go on ALIX boards.
