The utilities are not present on m0n0wall. You need a FreeBSD 4.x system
(m0n0wall 1.1 is based on FreeBSD 4.10).

I've written a script that will update m0n0wall images, recreating the file
systems if necessary. It's available from http://www.xs4all.nl/~fredmol/m0n0
Look for "m0n0-inst-modules". Note that a module is nothing more that a
tar file or directory with files to update the m0n0wall image with.
You'll still need FreeBSD 4.x to run it.

No, Linux has too little support for it. By default it can only mount
FreeBSD file systems read-only. It lacks:
- Write support
- A compatible newfs
- The disklabel utility
