i trying to run a Compact Flash on MBX860,
i have a 2.4.2_hhl20 Montavista Kernel and  Linux
PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.22 running on the board.
Kernel has MTD support.
Kernel has msdos,vfat support.
When I put the Compact Flash into the socket the next
message appear:

fatfs: bogus cluster size
VFS: Can't find a valid MSDOS filesystem on dev fd:00.

I put the compact flash into a windows laptop and all
is ok.

The complete message show in var/log/syslog -->
