I need help with CompactFlash- I want to boot from 2GB Sony CompactFlash device I have. I connected it to netCF board and plugged onto connex- the whole set up boots fine- u-boot recognizes the SMC chip on netCF but doesn't recognize 2GB of flash. How can I make the u-boot recognize it? How do I load u-boot, filesystem and kernel onto CompactFlash instead of booting from gumstix's tiny flash? I really need to get it working.
Thanks in advance!

There are very detailed instructions on the wiki for doing this.
follow the steps outlined in section 2 and 3.
To see how it all works before going through the entire process, just
copy the contents of the two files at the top of the wiki page labled
"working example" onto your compact flash and it should boot up onto
it instead of the onboard flash
