I never tried when I had my Voyager running, but I've had no
problem mounting CF cards in a PCMCIA adaptor in a sbus/pcmcia
card under Solaris 8. The documentation says there's a very low
limit (64 meg?) but I've been using a 512meg card. (I use it to
transfer photos from my camera.)

Speed is not very good though. (500 k/s?)
