      I don't see why this wouldn't work. It's only listed as
      not working because they don't have an ASR to test:

        Hi to all,
        on march 2007 i tested with an ASR10 this alternative configuration
        in an external SCSI fanless chassis :
        one 2GO 80x compact flash + one compact flash to IDE adaptor + one
        IDE to SCSI bridge (terminal power jumper= off, ID SCSI = 4 because
        it"s the only bootable ID for the ASR10) = it works ! and i can boot
        from it.
        Saving is not faster
        Loading is 30% faster
        NO NOISE !!!!

        -compact flash to IDE adaptor : http://cgi.ebay.fr/Compact-Flash-CF-

        ewItem
        -IDE to SCSI bridge : http://www.acard.com/english/fb0101.jsp?
        type1_idno=2

        !!!!For those that are not in DIYing, i can sell you a stand alone
        SCSI double PCMCIA drive .
        They are NOS (new old stock) from the reputed swiss brand ADTRON
        specialised in flash disk.

        it's not the model displayed here (http://www.adtron.com/pdf/ASPC-
        sum022505.pdf) but the caracteristics are the same : 50-pin high
        density SCSI-2, double slot for two : ATA compatible PC Card Type I,
        II, and III; CompactFlash Type II with adapter; Hard disk in PC Card
        Type II format; Microdrive in CompactFlash Type II format with
        adapter; SmartMedia; MMC cards with adapter; SRAM; and Fortezza

        I have 3 of them to sell.
        The bundle include the external drive(beige), the external power
        (110V)and drivers in the original box (unopened).
        To use it with a Compact Flash card, you just need a passive adapter
        (http://cgi.ebay.fr/PCMCIA-Compact-Flash-CF-PC-Card-Reader-Writer-
        Adapter_W0QQitemZ150136005663QQihZ005QQcategoryZ43449QQrdZ1QQcmdZView
        Item)

        Details :
        The AdtronT SDDS CardpakT storage subsystem is a removable SCSI PC
        card drive that connects to the SCSI Bus, delivering high transfer
        rates, industry standard SCSI compatibility and PC card hot
        swapping. Specifically designed for demanding applications in
        telecommunications, military computers, digital imaging, data
        security and ruggedized data storage, the Adtron SDDS PC Card Drive
        brings high performance and PCMCIA compatibility to desktop,
        workstation and notebook computers through the industry-standard
        SCSI interface.

        Adtron Cardpak solid-state data drives meet removable media
        requirements in a wide range of applications. The Adtron SDDS suits
        the needs of mission critical and data transfer in military
        aircraft, image transfers from a professional class digital camera
        to a graphics workstation, SCSI hard disk replacement in embedded
        computers and data encryption using Fortezza security cards.

        The SDDS drive includes single and dual slot versions in an external
        chassis and may be configured to emulate a removable disk, a fixed
        disk, or a removable tape drive. With the use of ATA flash PC cards,
        the SDDS provides the durability and reliability of all solid state,
        removable storage in extended temperature ranges.

        -PC cards : Ability to use PC cards instead of disks to operate as
        a standard SCSI removable storage device
        -Removable and fixed media disk and tape drives : Allows emulation
        of SCSI removable and fixed media in a 3.5-inch form factor
        -SCSI bus termination : Built-in active SCSI bus termination ensures
        high quality bus signal
        -Combined PC card capacities : When uses as a hard disk replacement,
        the SDDS PC Card combines the capacity of both PC cards

        What fanless chassis did you use? If the chassis has a ID device switch on it, did you rig it to the bridges ID selector? Or did you bypass the chassis ID
        Message 3 of 16 , Aug 17, 2007
          What fanless chassis did you use?

          If the chassis has a ID device switch on it, did you rig it to the
          bridges ID selector? Or did you bypass the chassis ID selector and
          just used ID select on the scsi to ide bridge?

          I wanna do this for my eps16+ asap.
