I can confirm your assumption.  In testing today I found some CF or CF 
adaptors (SD-->CF) show up as secondary and some as primary with the 
BIOS set to flash=primary.  Sansdisk CF cards seem to take the setting 
from the BIOS without a problem, but others are interpreted as Secondary 
(ad1) for some reason or another.  Juts good info to have I guess.
