I use pfSense, but my system (based on an Alix 2D3 board) has a compact 
flash drive, so I simply dd the disk image onto the CF card on my normal 
FBSD box, and plug it into the Alix, which is the usual way of deploying 
embedded pfSense. What hardware are you using? Does it have any CF or SD 
card capability, or maybe a USB port?
