I had similar problems trying to install m0n0 to an adapter from here:
http://ide-cf.info-for.us/

In the end I used physdiskwrite.exe on a Windows box and that got things
working.

that was cool! 

I know now the card adapter works, I can boot to the cd, its recognize
properly and I can see activity light as a do:

gzcat $image | dd of=/dev/da0 bs=16

but when I reboot, i get a "read error" again.
I'm considering purchasing yet, another, not so "el chipo" card and see if
that works.

thanks for the great info. And thanks Chris for the cool idea.
