Compactflash frugal install

I have a 128mb compactflash card, a compactflash => Laptop adapter and a USB card reader. For a while now I've been trying to get DSL installed on the card but with no success. I've partition it with Fdisk but only my laptop reads the partitions neither my windows (XP) nor 98 can read it they only see 122mb single partition.
I'd like to install DSL but I've heard it can only install to master and I dont want that, I'd like to see if I can install it either by the card reader or by connecting the Compactflash card and set it as slave.

P.S. If anyone knows of how I can partition is under linux or windows that would help me greatly.
