In the docs there is mention of =91the easy way=92 to install is to use=
compact flash adaptor to preload the CF card with the software from a
FreeBSD host with a CF adaptor. I don=92t have that, but I do have a W=
2000 laptop with a CF to PC Card adaptor.
It is possible somehow to just image the software into the CF (I guess =
cf_tree/) by sticking the CF card in the laptop and using rawrite or
something? Presumably, you need to create a FreeBSD filesystem on the =
and have put the kernel in a bootable location (I guess the CF equivale=
Another question: I=92m confused by Step 1 of the PXE boot process, whe=

have an example configuration of that?
I pretty much have sshd running with this (taken from I think the bridg=
configuration of PICOBSD, read the comments in there) =96 I bring this =
from the 4501 discussion group as it=92s more appropriate.

However, I still have problems; sshd wants to chown the pty device=92s

My kludge for the moment is to remount / as writeable (mount =96u =96w)=
that=92s not great for long term. Suggestions welcome.
I=92m running it with FreeBSD 4.5. I had to find ssh-1.2.27.tar.gz on =
net, download and install for it to work, I think it had some dependenc=
too, but I don=92t remember.

Other interesting things I did:
Running thttpd (statically, 340 K) and htpasswd (haven=92t tried it yet=
100K), putting kvm back in and having real netstat, also grep and cut. =
=91led=92, a small program to turn the 4501 led on or off, dynamically =
(based on the program posted earlier to the 4501 list). Plus some
proprietary stuff of 270 =96300K, leaves me at 4100 for all.
Next, I=92m hoping to try to get a DHCP server and a DNS cache working,=
some more remote monitoring cgi-stuff for the web server. Maybe some S=
stuff, maybe some routed. Anyone with any luck on those?
