Topic FlashDisks not in WebOrder Using PC Cards for Flash Disks, CompactFlash, and IDE Harddisks

If your board is equipped with a PC-Card adapter (also known as PCMCIA adapter) you can use this for miscellaneous types of mass storage devices like Flash Disks, CompactFlash, and IDE Harddisks.

Please note that there are other options to operate such devices on Embedded Power Architecture Systems (for instace you can use the PCMCIA controller builtin to the PowerQUICC™I MPC8xx CPUs to build a direct IDE interface, or you can use some external controller to provide such an interface). The following description does not cover such configurations. Only the solution which uses a standard PC Card Slot is described here.
