I have an older Dell c600 laptop (PIII 600mhz) that I mostly use for utility purposes such as programming stuff via serial port and as a manual reader in the garage. Recently the hard drive has been going out in it. I can get a laptop HDD for it for around 50-100 bucks most places. But given that there is not that much that stays on it and keeping with the idea of fewer moving parts could I use something like: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.19494 and a 16 or 32gb CF card as my HDD? Would the bios see it as a hard drive and does it need any special formatting to work?
