I don't have a CF card at all. I've used my SD card many times to flash to different OS's/distro's/ROM's.
The thing is, the first/only partition has to be FAT or FAT16 or whatever.
I've used it with the whole 1gb as one partition, and with two partitions, second one being ext2fs or whatever. Has always worked fine.

hmm, well, I think perhaps I was being foolishly hopeful, as I went through all the DM menu and there's only the CF option (I couldn't imagine Sharp not putting an SD restore in the same menu as the CF).
fortunately, a colleague is willing to loan me his huge CF card.
