	That is axactly my problem.  This is a tiny 4watt kit type
	deal, all solid state with with memory that requires some
	special kind of burner.  [I have the latest pfSense tarball 
	and my .xml restore/update file.  ... so, software side, i'm
	all set.]

	I  _may_ have found somebody in the metro area who "may" find 
	the time.  He says it's not a matter of $$$, but I'll stuff it 
	in his shoes if i have to.   If this guy doesn't come thru, then 
	it is back to the pfsense forum.
