FreeBSD on IDE Flash disk drive

I plan to install a FreeBSD 6.2 router/gateway/DHCP server on a EPIA
box with 1GB Transcend IDE Flash drive. Since Transcend says that
this device is capable of "10,000 insertion/removal cycles" I assume
that I must minimize the number of writes to the drive. It is okay
with me if I have to configure syslog to log to another machine.

Any suggestions/instructions how to achieve this? Any experienced
users regarding this matter?

Thanks for ideas and help.
