I came across this product that I figured some of you might be interested in especially if you're buiding embedded firewall boxes with DragonFlyBSD. It's an SATA to Compact Flash device. It mounts in the front or the back of the PC. Seems pretty neat.

Here's the product link:


Cute - they say it's compatible with every Microsoft OS in history but no mention of all the other systems which support SATA. Then they recommend using their own SATA cards based on, wait for it, Sillicon Image chipsets. Good device though, just really difficult to trust a corporation like that.

How many CF-based embedded devices does DragonFly actually run on? I'd
be happy to use it but I wonder what advantage it has over NetBSD in
single-CPU embedded devices. I'm certainly interested in building a
few embedded devices sometime soon.
