the most i've been able to do so far w/ it is slap on the kern.flp and a custom mfsroot to boot off the nic onto a pxe server then launch a scripted install from there... still playing around w/ it though.. havent had too much time lately to get my *geek* mode on..

Yeah, I hear ya. Hopefully you get more time. I have contemplated getting a USB ram stick but was waiting to hear about Linux/BSD support.
