This is the approach I take with slackware, since I've never had any problems with system hangs/reboots using it. But, what concerns me about this approach when using FreeBSD is that I've had spontaneous reboot problems with FreeBSD. Although I think I've narrowed the solution down to just not using kernel ppp, since I get the reboots using pppd whether or not I've set debug.mpsafenet=0 on my system, there may be other issues involved. With everything under /, a spontaneous reboot might leave the filesystem corrupted and unusable, correct? I cound certainly try it, though, once I know that I've taken care of the rebooting issue for good.
