Lowell: Your options sound interesting, but since I'm fairly new to FBSD I
don't know how to perform either option. Can you point me toward some
documentation, tutorials, etc., that might help me understand how to do
what you're suggesting?

Also, should I be concerned about the life expectancy of a CF?

Finally, I'm sure I'll be customizing the kernel for Soekris so will
the poudriere
method of keeping the system up to date work for a custom kernel?
