Thanks - I also boot off a 15MB ATA card in the CompactFlash slot. But, when
I slipped the CF card into the CF-to-PC-CARD converter I have and slid the
combo into a PC-CARD slot my FreeBSD kernel was unhappy and panic'd upon
reboot. I am strongly suspicious that this is just a FreeBSD kernel
configuration issue, but I wanted to check with the group to see if there
were some sort of obscure hardware issue before investing $1000 of the
company's money in a "big" flash card!
