| Hi all,
| I need to make a few FreeBSD boxes, these will all be limited in disk 
| space,
| and act as firewall/router. (pentium and 300M disk)
| What I want is a limited operating system that has only the essential
| networking stuff, shell, and a custom kernel but for example no BIND and 
| CVS.
| In the end all machines should have the same OS installed.
| What's a good way to handle this?
| Making a custom release, an install script, tweaking make.conf and 
| install from
| source or of course something else. (I don't need a ready solution, but some
| insight in how to acomplish this task in an efficient manner.)
| Thanks
| Rob Evers
