As long as your bios supports booting from CF, it should be straightforward.
Simply mount the CF as you would a drive, setup fs, copy your image over,
and point your bootloader to it.  Just read your board docs to see where the
CF shows up...on the Via boards I use, it's jumperable to hdc1 or 2, but it
varies by board to almost anywhere.
