 I have an old IBM 2675 Transnote that can't boot from USB but would boot
 from a Compact Flash memory card.  I tried using Fedora LiveUSB Creator on
 a 1Gb CF card.  The boot starts but I receive the following errors:

 When the loading screen bars march across the screen, I see "Generic 12"
 instead of "SoaS 1".  Then:

 "No root device found.  Boot has failed, sleeping forever."

 Could someone put together a SoaS image for a CF card without too much
