I have kind of a dumb question. I've been running m0n0wall for years on a Soekris box (4501
initially, 4801 currently). And, well, I bought it so long ago, I have no idea how much RAM is in
it. Nor can I remember the size of the CF card.

Is there a way to tell either or both of these from the m0n0wall web GUI? There's only a percentage
gauge on the Status > System screen, and I am left wondering "30% of _what_?". (Yes, that's a
feature suggestion. ;-)

If my RAM is OK, I don't need to upgrade the hardware; I'm sure I have larger CF cards laying around
from old cameras. But the RAM, not really a fixable problem...

If I _do_ need to replace it, I want something similar: low power, low heat, no fan, reliable. But,
if I'm going to upgrade, I'd want something that can handle the 1Gbps fiber Internet connection that
I fantasize is only a year or two away in San Francisco. I haven't seen the newer Soekris products
mentioned in this thread; anyone have experience with them?
