I could not get embedded workning and was in a hurry, i installed from cd to CF. For how long will the CF 2GB sandisc ultra 2
(new) be reliable before it reach it nedds to be replaced? Its a small net with 5 user.
I have a watt meter and when i replaced the harddrive it still take the same 47w. The harddrive was giving a lot of heat
and the CF is not. Why the same watt?

Try searching the forum. The answer depends on the quality of the underlying card.

Another option which has been alleged to be unsupported (as you would also find while searching) is to install full then edit
and change "pfSense" to "embedded" - this cuts out most disk writes (other than config changes, obviously).

I'd expect most types of flash memory thesedays perform some type of wear leveling.
How long they'd last running the full version of PFSense I have no idea but i'd hope to get at least 6 months out of a 2gb card.
That said i'm willing to risk it as i want to run TinyDNS as a dns cache and lets face it CF cards don't exactly break the bank thesedays. :D
