booting from CompactFlash Cards


I plan to replace a Cisco by a Linux router and would like to use a 
"compact flash" card instead of a hard drive to minimize hardware outages.

Can anybody recommend me a CompactFlash solution that allowes booting?

As far as I learned those cards have build-in IDE adapters and are
connected to the PC via a simple connector-adapter to a 40pin IDE cable.
Sadly at least Verbatim do not think that their cards are able to present
a correct "master boot record" to the BIOS although I can see no difference
between requesting sector 0 on track 0 (MBR) and any other position.
