If you have a laptop, you could put the CF card into a PCMCIA slot using
a CF-PCMCIA adaptor.
Once you have a working ramdisk image, you would also need to compile
a native /sbin/fdisk yourself as it isn't currently built for arm32
ports. It does work fine though, I have put a partition table onto a
CF card using it.
