Did you get my previous private message?

m0n0wall is an *entire* Operating System (kernel + tools), like 
GNU/Linux or FreeBSD (some would add MS Windows, but I don't ;-)

It's not a part of an OS, nor a standalone application. You have to boot 
it from scratch from a bootable media (CD-Rom, CF card or HD).

More, I think Linux can only load its own kernel from /boot...


If you mean "Is there something similar based on GNU/Linux?", try IPCop 
or SmoothWall. Even with GNU/Linux, you'd better read the doc ;-)

If you mean "setting up a PXE boot environment with GNU/Linux", I really 
don't know if it's possible.

You'd better try m0n0wall with the CD-Rom version, as it requires 
nothing but changing your BIOS boot sequence + a blank diskette.
