Does the netCF card work with power over ethernet?
I'm planning on making a wearable with two connex motherboards, one for
wireless netCF, the other for CF storage. An audiostix2 would be used as
well, both for sound and to connect to a Kopin cyberdisplay 230k, if I can
figure out how to get that to work (going to set be back about $700 if I
can scrounge up the money, ugh). The whole thing would be glued together
with openSSI, again assuming I can get it to work.
It would be handy to use the LiPoly charger and LiP2000 battery from
Sparkfun to power one of the boards and use PoE for the other.

No, but you can run power on the unused wires in the ethernet cable:
This will not be compatible with commercial PoE gear (IEEE802.3af),
but it will work for your application.
