	I _will_ order the Guide since I rely on pfSense ...  

	What I ordered last night was the "6e1". The site
	pointed me to a netgate website here in the States.  So: the
	entire kit is enroute; or will be soon.

	What I don't understand is the CF card and howto install
	pfSense.  I'll re-read wherever I have to but some clues would 
	certainly help.  I installed pfSense by CDROM initially and
	figure this time the install would be done by thumb-drive.

	Pointers, URLs welcome!
