I believe that the mailing list software (correctly) removed any 
attachments sent, so we can't look at screen grab.

Let me try to understand what you are trying to do.  Are you trying to 
build a dual-boot machine which could boot m0n0wall off of a particular 
partition?  If so, I don't think that that will happen.  As I understand 
it, m0n0wall is a disk image, and may not work as a "partition image". 
But I could easily be wrong about such boot processes.  I think, however, 
that physdiskwrite does exactly what it says.  It writes to a physical 
disk, not a partition.

Or are you trying to install m0n0wall on the 20GB disk which you will then 
move to a machine which will run m0n0wall?  If so, than overwrite that 
disk. But keep in mind m0n0wall will run comfortably on a 16MB "disk". 
20GB is a complete and utter waste.

If you are trying to "install" m0n0wall as an application that runs on 
some operating system, then you have misunderstood what m0n0wall is.  It 
is its own operating system.

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to help more specifically.  I'm not 
entirely sure what it is that you are trying to do.
