So now I am a bit confused. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Can any
one advice me on what to try next? Should I try to reinstall with a /boot
partition and a / partition? Is there something I need to do for the CF
card?


Did you write a GRUB MBR to the drive, Chris?



I'd have a look at Debian's guide to the eee. Your approach seems similar enough. http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC

I don't have time to read the entire thing over but I saw this.


Now let the installer do its thing until it wants to write the GRUB bootloader. Stop now. Do not install the GRUB bootloader in the MBR.

To install the bootloader on your external media you have to give the name of the device as the installer sees it during installation.
