I did not see your original message, but I have had some recent
experience in this area and made a discovery.
We are using a Via single-board computer for our m0n0wall at work and
its CF card recently died. It uses a CF to IDE adapter made by PC
Engines (of Switzerland) which is widely available.
I bought a replacement IDE card and flashed the m0n0wall image from my
laptop using a USB adapter. When I put the CF card in the Via
computer, it would fail to boot. I went through this process numerous
times, and even tried different CF cards, all with identical results.
Then I started experimenting with the BIOS settings for the Via. I
discovered that it booted and ran perfectly if I changed the disk type
to "CHS" addressing instead of "LBA" or "Auto". You may want to give
this a try.
