I currently have a Belkin F5U248. Also an 8 in 1, but only CF will work
under NetBSD. The mini Belkin leaflet which came with it does say that
SD/MMC, MS, xD, etc require special drivers. These, of course, are all
automatically detected under Windows 2000 and XP, requiring no driver
installation (which is quite convinient).

Much joy comes from the ability to use CF.
