Hi guys.

I have a Avila Gateworks 2348-4 board which is based on the Intel IXP42x series Xscale CPU [1]. I have managed to boot the evbarm NetBSD on it with NFS mounted root file system. Now I would like to install NetBSD to my Compact Flash but it's not being recognized.
I tried the IXDP425 and NSLU2 kernel configs with no luck.
My board can boot just fine with both kernels but the CF is not being recognized.
How would I go about enabling support for the compact flash?
Where to start, what to check... any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

FreeBSD seems to have ATA code supporting Compact Flash devices on IXDP425 (Avila):

Can any of you mighty NetBSD hackers take a look ta this and see if it would be trivial to port it to NetBSD? Having a board that has no support for any kind of storage device, neither NAND/NOR or CF makes it pretty unusable. One can't be expected to run an NFS server 24/7 only to NFS boot his router...
