Issue with FreeBSD, Compact Flash - FreeBSD

Howdy, Does anyone have any ideas on the following? Trying to load m0n0wall, which uses a FreeBSD 5 kernel. Keep getting the boot errors you see in the paste link below. http://paste.atopia.net/107 We really dont want to have to switch back to a hard drive :-( Any ideas are appreciated in advance. Thanks, Matt...

    Maybe your CF-Card doesn't implement the ATA-Mode correctly. I once had a card
    which had wrong ATA-mode support but it didn't even boot.
    But I don't know why these errors occur, I'd suggest trying the following
    in /boot/loader.conf:
    hw.ata.ata_dma=0
    hw.ata.wc=0

    Good luck,

    These options were already set. Any other ideas? otherwise we're going
    to have to skip the flash card option and put a hard drive in this box
    :-( :-(

    Thank you,

    Matt

    Well, I have no idea other than replacing the card with a generally knwon
    working one. I had no problems with Kingston CF cards and if you prefer
    DMA-capable cards I'd recommend SanDisk ultraII. But if your CF-Connector
    hasn't the neccessary DMA hardwired lines you need to disable ata_dma, though
    it's working fine.
    I'd perfer experimenting, using a rotating HD is no solution. Have you checked
    your card in any other (ata-mode) device? In what kind of hardware do you
    plug in your card, Soekris, EPIA, WRAP, or general IDE-CF adapter?

    We're trying to run m0n0wall on a Nexcom Nexgate 1045.

    The card that came with it is a Sandisk card. The card works in other
    devices (we can extract the full image to it with no problems).

    I prefer experimenting too, but the boss really wants it up :-( :-(

    I can try to hunt down some other cards, but please let me know if you
    have any other suggestions.

    Adding to my response below, I'd like to also say that we have two of
    these units, and both units have failed (with two different readers, and
    cards).

    Okay, I'm not really an ATA expert nor do I know the code, but what I foundis
    that it could be a LBA/CHS problem.
    Which version do you use? Have you tried to slice/lable the card inside the
    NSA 1045 (from a temporary FreeBSD holding HD)?
    If I'm right you dump a preformatted image onto the card, maybe you have
    addressing problems....
    I gave up using images, PXE-booting (or installing a HD on machines which have
    the possibillity) and installing the base system right on the destination
    hardware turned out to be much safer and is not really more time consuming...

    Mayby playing with BIOS LBA/CHS settings gives some hint's, I don't expect
    that, but I'd try that and if that all fails you may want to contact Søren,
    the ATA author.
