Subject: Re: Replacing Hard Drive with CF Card
From: roland (for_spam_at_gmx.de)
some time ago, i experimented a little bit with hooking cf onto ide bus.
i was very disappointed that adapters were so horrible expensive and i
read into that a little bit.
i got a cf working on ide bus, without any electronic adapter - just connected
the pins the right way - that was all.
i could mount them under linux but i had strange problems with booting from them -
recognized that this depends on the brand of CF. sandisk worked best, from my
experience - they are "nearest to the specs".
