Playing around with solid state FreeBSD. Read the Article in the Docs
section. Wondering if anybody has any recommendation on trimming down the
OS to fit on a "disk on chip" solid state storage device. WOuld like to
have Solid State box that can do packet filtering (probably IPFilter),
DHCP, email notification, small web server,  and perhaps some kind of
Bandwidth Throttling/QOS.  Any ideas on how to fit all this stuff into
512MB?? I'm not sure which libraries i can totally dispose of and which
are absolutely nescessary.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at picobsd. It's in the tree at /usr/src/release/picobsd. Search
the mailing lists for more info.
