Hello Matthias,

	Actualy it was a quest for a compact flash interface that started me on
this IDE interface saga to begin with. I knew you could build an adapter
to access compact flash cheaply/easily.

	Would it be posssible to give me ( or post ) a list of signal names of
what 405 signal connects to what compact flash signal in your interface?
I can understand if you say no.

	Also was the compact flash connected dirrectly to the data and address
bus or did you need to buffer it in some way?

	Just the fact that I now know it can be done is of great help.
