hi folks!

with the various m0n0 hardware/software troubles i've been wrestling with
lately, and all the messin' 'round with modified m0n0 images, i've written
a few little scripts to help me through it all.  i ain't no developer,
just an enthusiastic "advanced novice."

i've already posted a shell script that may help some folks who need to
build custom m0n0 images.  here's a php page that you can upload to your
/usr/local/www directory and run like you would run exec.php or
status.php.  i didn't know a word of php 5 days ago, and "wrote" this page
mostly by cutting and pasting bits from other pages in /usr/local/www, so
be kind with your comments :-) (which, of course, i invite).

full_backup_restore.php provides a way of performing a full backup of a
m0n0wall system onto an unused portion of the boot device.  i've found it
to be usefull while tinkering with various betas and modified images.

enjoy, but use at your own risk!  details are on the page itself.
