OK. I've been able to successfully get into the BIOS no problem.
Can boot the IA-1, enter BIOS, and get to the BOOT ORDER option.
Being bad at following directions, I figured out that I have to seat the CF card to boot the thing and add it to the boot order. I also enabled all the IDE devices in the list within BIOS.
However, upon putting a CF card in the slot the machine will not boot.
I remove it and it's fine.
The CF card does seem to get pretty darn warm when it's in there however.
I've tried a 8 and 32 meg card. The 32 Meg has the jailbait image on it 8 meg is blank just used to throw in there.
Anyone have any suggestions or is my IPAQ have a problem with the CF slot?
