On the internet, I've seen two kinds of adapters: ones that fit into a
standard 3.5" drive space and are designed to treat the CF card as
removeable media like a floppy drive, others are designed to fit like a
hard drive.  One other kind, is designed to plug directly onto the IDE
controller on the MB without a cable.

Try startech, but also try any industrial or single-board-computer
supplier, such as norcotek.com or soekris.com.
