What has to be done after image is "dd" to CF card?
I "dd" the image from Ubuntu onto a CF card and I the image has occupied space. The flag set on the CF card is "boot" as shown in gparted. However, when I insert the card in Alix hardware it doesn't boot (as it doesn't get me no IP). I am trying to locate my serial to USB cable now.
Have I missed any steps in the process?

What is the the name of the image? (Maybe you didn't pick the correct image for Alix.)
dd to the whole device (e.g. /dev/sdc - correct!) or to a partition (e.g. /dev/sdc1 - incorrect!)?
