My problem turned out to be two-fold (aside from the fact I just didn't
know what to expect):
When writing the CF image file...
(1) indeed I should have been writing to /dev/sda and not /dev/sda1, and
(2) 'dd bs=16k' didn't seem to work, but using the default bs on 'dd'
did work (someone else suggested this).
Once the system booted, it was all easy to figure out and familiar
territory... It's pretty rocking so far. There goes my weekend... 8-)
Thanks for the help.
