    I'm afraid you're going to need to spell out exactly what you're trying to do. it sounds like you want to raid compact flash which I can assure you small ssd's will be faster and cheaper.

    Its possible, using a CF to IDE adapter, since CF cards -are- IDE drives, then using an IDE to SATA converter as well.

    I second the SSD option instead, its more elegant and less of a cludge.

    That is what I was trying to do. I did some research in meantime and you are correct.
    I now wonder how 1 x CF stand compared to single 3.5 HDD. Know that CF would roughly have half the speed but much faster seek time. In practice what would be better for OS drive ?
