How to: Install 1.2.3 on ALIX with IDE HDD

Congratulations to the pfsense team!!! Version 1.2.3 is an excellent release, and well worth upgrading to.
The instructions I previously posted for version 1.2.2 are 100% obsolete, do not follow them. I recommend the old thread be deleted entirely, but of course that isn't up to me.

Hi there dsamms,
the method described in you 1.2.2 hd install tutorial also works for pfSense2.0beta, therefore I think it should not be removed. Just did a successfull 2.0 install on my ALIX. FreeBSD 8 doesn't seem to include the ATA patch either. Too bad. But thanks to your tutorial pfSense2.0 is up and running now.
The only further thing I had to do was to reset to factory defaults before I could assign an IP to the LAN interface properly. It bailed out with the folowing error before:
Fatal error: Cannot unset string offsets in /etc/rc.initial.setlanip on line 200
