	Betreff: [m0n0wall] Compact Flash Adapters for PC installation

	Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a compact flash to
	IDE adapter that will work with the generic PC image using newer Intel
	mainboards?  I've tried a few different ones from Addonics which crash
	the system at various stages during boot and a generic one which would
	not boot at all in an Intel motherboard.  Alternatively, suggestions for
	properly configuring a CF to IDE adapter and getting it to work without
	crashing would be appreciated as well.  We've settled for now on using
	an Adaptec USB floppy/CF reader, but have found the boot time in newer
	motherboards to be excessively long -- + 7 minutes.  We'd assumed that
	was because FreeBSD 4 did not have USB 2.0 drivers for the newer
	chipsets from Intel (915 and higher).  Anyway, assistance, thoughts,
	commentary would be most welcome.
