Although I haven't used the CF slot on a printer to write the m0n0 image either, I've seen how they
work for other tasks.
The printer is USB-connected, and the card slots on the printer look just like any other CF reader
would. As a removable disk on Windows, or as /dev/sda... on linux. Should work the same, using
physdiskwrite or dd to the /dev/sda.

All kinds of people use external CF writers to write cards on Linux.
I've never heard of any problems when it's done right. But I also
don't think I've ever heard of anybody using the CF slot on a printer.
I'm not familiar with how those work vs. the normal CF writers the
rest of us use, that might be a problem.
I don't know the answer to most of your comments, but the only time
I've ever seen or heard of read errors on Soekris boards are from
writing it wrong, like using /dev/sda1 instead of /dev/sda, or a CF
card that the Soekris boards just don't like. They're pickier than
most external card writers, cameras, and other devices that use CF.
Use a good quality card like a Sandisk and that shouldn't be an issue.
They have all kinds of problems with cheap and no-name CF cards.
