" hey list-
" I have a little sparc 10 here, and I want to swap the disk for something a little less "moving". I was looking at this thing:
" ACARD ARS-2000FU IDE to Ultra SCSI
" (http://4onlineshop.stores.yahoo.net/arulscbrfdef.html)
" and plugging it into this guy:
" CompactFlash (CF) to 40-pin IDE Adapter 
" (http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=CF2IDE-35-BULK)
" I have the CF adapter, so I'd like to use it, but I haven't picked up the ACARD yet.
" I'd like to know, does anyone have any experience with the ACARD with a sparc10? I'm running Solaris, but I could just as easily be running OpenBSD. Will it work? Will it boot?

which version solaris?  8 might support cf, but 2.6 won't.  i'm not
sure even 10 can boot from it.
