Question Compact Flash on single-board computers 

Forum: PCMCIA ATA/IDE Device Issues
Date: 1999, Nov 02
From: smckown

I'm new to PCMCIA and CompactFlash.

I will be using an Advantech PCM-5820 SBC (single-board computer) to implement a small router using LRP. I have found other folks who have accomplished this task using other models of SBC's from the company. Now, to my question.

The 5820 has a CompactFlash slot. How can I determine if I can use a SanDisk (or M-Systems or similar) CompactFlash card in this slot as a bootable device under Linux?

I understand that CompactFlash is 100% compatible with the PC Card ATA standard, so would I simply use the PCMCIA package's ide_cs driver?

Thanks smckown@ctea.com
