All you need is a CF to IDE adapter.
Google will find plenty, eg.
http://www.cfide.co.uk/compact_flash_ide_adapters.shtml
The Compact Flash card then plugs straight on an IDE cable.
If you put a Linux image on the CF card the machine will boot it just
the same as from a hard disk.
(Of course I mean you read from the CF and boot to RAM)
