      If the card-reader is not an all-in-one device (a device which reads
      many different types of cards) but has only one slot for the CF cards,
      than it should be no problem.
      I never tested suvh solution, but in my opinion it should work fine.

      What do you intend to do with the FTDI USB device interface unit? Do
      you want to drive a FPGA and realize a multiprocessor NSLU2?
