above reply meant for list, and that's an excellent point.  Seems
every motherboard with SATA also has IDE ports, so get a IDE to CF
adapter.  There may be SATA to CF adapters out there too.  No sense in
wasting a $BIGNUMBER GB drive when you only need 8 MB.  :)  Not to
mention CF will last longer, use much less power, generate much less
heat, and less noise.
