Putting network.img on a CF card and booting from it?

I am trying to get mandrake onto my IBM X20 laptop...
problem is that it has no CDROM or floppy drive, and I don't have any USB ones around.
It DOES have a built-in (PCMCIA) CompactFlash drive though. I was thinking that I could use the disk image that allows for a network install of mandrake on a CF card and boot from that.
Can i do that? My BIOS doesn't seem to let me select the CF drive as a boot option. Is there any way to change that?
Also, how do I go about using the disk image network.img to get it onto a CF card?

Thanks a lot!
