I haven't tried this with limey linux, but, I put a fixed-size flash image
on larger CF cards all the time....I currently use 1GB kingston CF cards.
They're about the smallest/cheapest I can get new. The linux image I'm
using is a custom configured OpenWRT image that is roughly 64MB in size.

I primarily use pcengines ALIX boards....I'm just now starting to try them 
with app_rpt....So far, so good!
