I'm running FreeBSD 6.1 at my Soekris board and I have 512MB
CompactFlash card in use. About 50% of the card is used by the
operating system, http server, python interpreter etc. and the other
half is free for e-mail and log files. The installation is just the
vanilla FreeBSD installation without any X11 packages. Only
modification I made, was to syslogd, where I disabled the cron job
