Yes, the m0n0BSD has replaced all the /etc/rc.* files and various
other hidie configurations with a single XML file, which is
maintained and read by PHP scripts.

miniBSD is more of a traditional "stripped down" FreeBSD, somewhere
bigger than picoBSD but smaller than the live bootable CD.  It will
run out of someting like a 64MB CF card.
