Well, the adapters are made by many vendors, even startech.  I haven't
used a CF card myself so don't know.  Try google for CF and
misc@openbsd.org, or try the openbsd website and look for a link to who
mirrors the mailing list.  Warning: only as a __last__ resort, send a
message to misc@ after temporarily subsribing.  That group doens't
tolerate in a friendly manner people asking who can't show that they
looked everywhere else first.

You may also want to check the openbsd website's on-line man page and do
an apropor for CF or compact flash.  Also check the openBSD FAQ.  The
FAQ and the man pages constitute the vast majority of the documentation
and are __very__ detailed.
