this might be interesting for the soekris folks out there(from current@ 

  For example, assuming a 32MB flash memory, one could use the following
  parameters to create an embedded system:

 ./tinybsd.sh 62592 4 32

 Or optionally the name of the output image you want:

 ./tinybsd.sh 62592 4 32 myimage.bin

i like how it is basicly a shell script, so you can take a running 
system and clone it to an embedded device.  anyway it's always good to 
see folks hacking on stuff i'm hacking on ;)
