Can't help too much with Linux install but technically the GCT will support two hard drives (on the primary controller) I have installed a hard drive and cdrom on several GCT to install XP, in that case I made a CSEL IDE cable since the laptop cdrom I was using only could be setup as cable select; If you had two IDE devices that could be set as master and slave you can run both assumeing that you had a dual connecter IDE cable.
I never tested using the compact flash installed but technically I would assume that you could install a hard drive as slave since the CF is detected as master when it's present.
RE:nuimber of drives and install (modified 0 times)
You should be able to get a hard drive as slave if the HD can be jumpered for cable select and you make a "slave" cable select IDE cable... this assumes that you usee the standard "reverse" IDE cable end on the board header.
If you do a search for CSEL or IDE cable select you can find the exact cross overs to ground, it as I have mentioned before, just taking the Csel line of the IDE to either positive or ground to determine if the device is master or slave... the GCT IDE interface is hardwired for cable select, just changing the jumper on a cdrom or hard drive alone will not make it appear as slave without using the correct type of cable.
