3x the price of some USB card reader. But putting the image on a flash card on a USB card reader,
doesn't boot, as the filesystem cannot be mounted, and the config file not be read. I suppose the
boot code does not expect the root partition to be found behind an USB device.

As I've seen your name in Bcol I know we're from the same country ;-)
I've got quite a lot of m0n0's running, and used to use those CF adapters too.
But the (cheap, through e-bay from hong kong) CF adapters were
sometimes giving you trouble.
So nowadays, as I need stable systems, I always go for ide flash
modules from transcend.
Like these: http://shop.transcend.nl/product/ItemDetail.asp?ItemID=TS32MDOM40V
Never had trouble with them ;-)
If you should need more information don't hesitate to contact me.
