Dunno Steve, I'm not a Glenside person, too far away.  As for using one of 
those $3 gizmos on an ide controller, everything I've ever written to the CF 
cards I use in the dd-wrt based router, was written with dd, which is the equ 
of addressing a device on the os9 bus with the /d1@ syntax, where you get the 
whole thing with no regard for any file system structure.  I've done that 
with the adaptor on the end of the ide cable, or with the CF card plugged 
into one of those $30 universal card thingies that plugs into a usb port.  
The usb gizmo is handier though.

Cheers, Gene

You can do this in a number of ways.  IBM chose to do all of them.
Why do you find that funny?
