LogicG8, I don't need to boot from the PCMCIA CF, I just need to make it bootable then the CF will go in an IDE-CF adapter.
I guess I could make a bootable CD and boot the mini-itx board from that, can I just write a floppy image to cd (ex. cdrecord bare.i)
Ok, I don't have a cd-rom drive that can read burned cd's except for my laptop and usb burner. The mini-itx board can't boot off the usb burner so I'm stuck again. My Ide to usb adapter is a laptop drive size, so I installed my linux dist on the cf, pulled out ly laptop drive and put the cf-ide and cf card in its place. I am using zipslack and the zipslack boot floppy hangs after it frees kernel memory. Any ideas there?
Strange things is when I put my laptop drive back in it booted up to the grub install menu?? I had to boot off the redhat cd and reinstall grub again.
