Thanks for the great explanation. I'm thinking of getting one of
these and will keep this posting for future reference.
Will any of the other Nokia devices work with m0n0wall (example Nokia
IP330 or 530)?

I currently have it running on a soekris box but recently aquired this IP110 from old stock at work.
Can I use the 5GB hard disk that comes with this unit? Or must I use a IDE>CF kit? Also I am
assuming I can use the Generic PC image. Currently I've taken the 5GB disk and attached it to my
USB 2.5 enclosure from which I imaged the disk with the generic image, however I'm not sure if this
is the correct procedure or not with the Nokia's.
