Flash to IDE installation

  • Hi,

    I have a server and a IDE to COMPACT FLASH connector and 4GB Compact flash.
    I was wondering what kind of installation should I do? The usual installation or the installation for flash. The server has vga and no serial output.

  • Just do the regular installation using a live ISO. but keep in mind that you shouldn't install services like Squid to create massive read/write on the card as it will poot!

    One more thing you need to consider is package management. dont try to install more than one package at the same time as it will create write errors at next boot and the package management will fail itself.

    hope it helps.
