Tutorial / Guide for headless installation - Does this exist?

I'm taking my first attempt at installing pfsense on a headless system. I'm at a loss of what to do and was hoping there was a guide out there. I've downloaded and flashed the pfSense-memstick-serial-2.1.5-RELEASE-i386-20140825-0744.img file onto a spare thumb drive but
The hardware is as follows:
Globalscale DreamPlug - https://www.globalscaletechnologies.com/t-dreamplugdetails.aspx
500GB HDD on USB to SATA adapter
PfSense only supports X86 architecture currently. That box isn't unfortunately.
You might give ipfire a try if you already own the device.
Its not pfsense.
Pretty sure IPFire is X86 only also. Though I could be out of touch there.
There's probably an OpenWRT port that would run on it though.
No idea about ipfire, but I've searched for arm compatible stuff before so I remembered this.
I'm sure there may be many hardware dependencies to consider, but maybe you will get lucky.
Ha. Looks like I am out of touch. ::)
The image contains the full installation of IPFire and be run on any ARM based device with an Marvel Kirkwood SoC or compatible processor
I'm often out of touch…
On the off hand chance that it works, I'd love to know how well it works.
