Can the multia boot from a compact flash disk?

You can add compact flash disks as normal IDE drives with an adaptor.

Sure I know about CF-IDE adapters, but the problem is that the multia
is not really up to date with IDE features.
The ATA-flash I tried is actually seen as a 256MB drive from every PC I
tried, but the Multia doesn't see it (as for "sho dev" at SRM)

So I asked if the Multia could boot directly from Compact Flash
I was thinking about the Multia's two PCMCIA slots and an adapter for
that slots.

If you have money, you could buy an IDE -> SCSI transformer (there
are some on the market):

WOW! Thanks for the information!
I thought that only yamaha produced a limited features adapter for IDE
CDRWs, but this adapter is way better!
That is really useful, for many machines not only the Multia!!
