    Win XP won't fit on a 1GB Flash compact card. In fact, I'm returning the 2 GB card I bought yesterday because the MINIMUM system requirements are 1.5 GB http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/h...n/sysreqs.mspx I also cancelled my order for the IDE to compact flash card adapter.

    You are correct about the 1g flash. HOWEVER, similar to the windows 95 limitation, I believe it is entirely possible to install on a hard drive, and move all relevant files to the flash card. Copying the boot sector info could be interesting, but I see no reason why it wouldn't work. Back in the day we used to get 95 on to little 80mb drives doing something similar. (IE it won't install on the 80mb drive because it says not enough space, but works fine if you copy all of it over.)

    I'll be interested in hearing about your progress. I don't have the win2k knowledge to attempt such an endeavor. However, if you are successful and wouldn't mind taking a few minutes to write instructions, I'm a pretty good reader!
