Hi Eric,

I don't have a lot of experience myself, but a lot of my fellow hackers 
who specialize in obsolete machines have reported problems with CF 
cards.  While CF cards are supposed to emulate IDE devices, a lot of the 
newer ones do not support CHS addressing and do not work in older 
machines.  The DOM style products are designed to be drop-in 
replacements, so there will not be an issue.

Older CF cards generally work as IDE substitutes.  Newer ones may not.  
On the topic of wear leveling I would go with the DOM products, as they 
are designed as hard drive replacements.  It's pretty easy to burn up 
FLASH so wear leveling is important.
