Does anybody have an opinion on whether or not a particular wired cf ethernet card would work with angstom? Some guy on ebay (search for "socket ethernet cf card") appears to have a lot of them and I was wondering if was worth a shot.

I searched ebay and came up with this result:
http://computers.shop.ebay.com/items/?_nkw...p;_osacat=58058

If this is what you found, this is the same card that I have and I haven't gotten it to work in any Zaurus distro, although 2.6.xx kernels are more promising than 2.4.xx kernels.
See my post below about this card:

I bought a CF card from a seller here on the auction, it's a Hawking 10/100 HCF686TX

worked first time no problems with debian and zubuntu. it's too new to me to have tried it with cacko yet.

I ended up buying one and it works under debian (zubuntu) with the 2.6.23 kernel, so I assume it will work under Angstrom as well. Search for "SOCKET ETHERNET CF CARD" on Ebay and it is the all in one version that does not have a dongle. It is recognized as NEC2000 and so now I have 10/100 network card for $34 including shipping. I think he has like 30 left. One bad thing is it is very long and and makes typing pretty interesting, but oh well.
