I've got normal PC with HDD (not CF) inside. It's acctually blank, no
partitions, no filesystems, no MBR. What should I do to install m0n0wall?
Download the raw CF/IDE image (generic-pc), write the image to a CF
card (> 5 MB) or an IDE hard disk, either with dd under FreeBSD or
under Windows with my tool, physdiskwrite 0.5
gunzip -c generic-pc-xxx.img | dd of=/dev/hdX bs=16k
where X = the IDE device name of your HD/CF card
put the CF card/HD into the target PC
plug the PC into the network (LAN/WAN/...)
power it up
But I can't do dd if I haven't got any partitions (hda1 does not exist
then). When I create FreeBSD partition with no filesystem (using
fdisk), and I dd - it does nothing (dd finishes ok, but it does not
boot). So I've got a question to you all:
- how should i create partitions for m0n0wall, which filesystems
should I create using mk...fs, and how can I make it boot?
I haven't had any FreeBSD knowledge yet.
