Hey guys.

Does anyone know what the new "minimal" install size is?

I remember running across a blurb about FBSD-7 and above  require more 
space and supposedly won't fit on less than 512MB or something like that.

What are these specs?

And I feel like I should still be able to product an 8-20MB image for an 
embedded firewall/network appliance.

I am attempting to port my firewall and vpn appliance to a CF-Card, or 
to the user-loadable flash on this old PIII motherboard which runs this 

I am having a bit of a time locating information in reference to this 
task, which does not reference 4.x and netbsd.
