If you're installing onto a CF card you want the "embedded" version. You
download the version that matches the size of your CF card - there are
512M, 1G, 2G and 4G versions. I went for 4G because I had a convenient
card lying around, but it's overkill. You decompress it and simply dd it
onto the card (presuming you've got a normal Unix box). This link will help
This is the embedded category page on the doc wiki
Then all you do is insert the card into the CF adapter on the Alix
board, fire it up and point your web browser at it to do the initial set
up. (Don't forget to change the serial line speed to 9600 beforehand.)
The initial address is 192.168.1.1, username/password are admin/pfsense.
