    Seems very cool and all, too bad flash memory still has a very limited amount of times it can be written :( Without write control an average Windows machine would burn up a card in 1-2 weeks. If they’d solve that problem, then yeh, love :)

    If you used a CF adapter can you use SDHC cards? I have a couple of 16 GByte cards I would love to be able to boot from
