 Subject:  Don't seem 2C m0n0wall on Soekris 4511 board...?

Well, I'm joining the ranks of m0n0wall/Soekris users, or trying to this 

After following (what appears) to a "T" the instructions for running 
m0n0wall (at http://m0n0.ch/wall), I don't seem to have a running 
system.  There does appear to be one anomoly:

(1) The instructions say:

* net4511/net4521 only: choose "Assign network ports" in the serial 
console menu and enter nothing for the DMZ interface name and wi0/an0 
(and/or wi1/an1) for WLAN1(/2)

That doesn't appear on the net4511 serial console menu at all.  Here's 
what my net4511 boot screen looks like:

I don't see an "Assign network ports" option anywhere?  Is there 
something I'm missing?  The net4511 documentation appears to be quite 
thin, so I'm hoping someone here sees something...

The CF seemed to write well.  I used 'dd' under Linux:

$ gunzip -c net45xx-pb14r458.img | dd of=/dev/sda1 bs=16k
320+0 records in
320+0 records out

...was my output.  That matches with the CF size uncompressed (16384 x 
320).  The MD5 checksum matched...

I tried a "boot 80" command from the net4511 console and that didn't 
work either.  Also tried (with a network crossover cable -- I don't see 
why that wouldn't work?) to obtain an IP address via DHCP on the LAN 
port (Eth 0 on the net4511) -- both ports actually.  Nothing.  So I'm 
kinda at my wits end here.
