Sorry to reply to my own post, I knew once I posted I would figure it out,
it always goes that way. In case anyone is insterested I used the diff from
and patched '/usr/src/sys/i386/cdboot/cdboot.s' to properly recognize the
'/boot/loader' instead of '/BOOT/LOADER'.. I also figured out that I
shouldn't be using the boot.flp image, but the cdboot instead..

Once again sorry to reply to my own post.

Subject: [m0n0wall] creating the CD iso images

Hey, sorry if this a tad off topic, but I have been trying to create an iso
image from a modified m0n0wall configuration, but I can't get the thing to
boot.. If there is someone that does, or has done this with m0n0, could you
kindly point me in the right direction. I have followed every faq I can find
on the net about creating bootable CD's, but I am missing something
somewhere about the location of the root partition..

I was hoping Manuel could possibly send me his build scripts..

Here's a bit of what I've tried..

untar rootfs - make mods
got boot.flp from FreeBSD CD /boot/images
mounted boot.flp and inserted the kernel.gz from an existing m0n0 CD
placed boot.flp in my source dir
ran mkisofs -l -r -L -o cdimage.iso -b boot.flp source_dir

it makes ok, and boots, but can't find/mount the root partition.

maybe my loader.rc, lodaer.conf? I'm lost, and frustrated..

Thanks in advance,

Rob Whyte
