Re: How to install Fedora 7 to a CF card connected via IDE-CF adapter?



CF should work. There are problems with some combinations of CF card and
adapter as newer cards often do MWDMA or UDMA but the older adapters
don't support this - a fact you can't autodetect.

It's also important to understand CF cards have two modes. When plugged
into an IDE cable via a convertor they act as if they were disk devices
and you should be able to install onto them without problem. If you plug
them into a PCMCIA card they appear as removable media and I suspect
Anaconda won't consider them a viable install target.
