Inexpensive CF to IDE converter. Simple and works. Well made board.
Only one slot. CF cards are not ideal for frequent write operations. Use a microdrive in this situation.
I used it with a 2GB microdrive and installed Win98. Speed was quite reasonable. Of course since it is an interface converter with no electronics, the speed depends on what you plug in to it.
If you plan a diskless router or internet kiosk, get a CF with decent speed. It should always be faster than CD boot. Watch the writing strategy on CF cards as they DO have a finite life. I would try to do swapping on a RAM drive.
