I am using an off the shelf PC motherboard with a TrueIDE boot flash. A RAM-resident system loads from the CF card. From that point on the CF card is not used (no filesystems mounted).
Is it electrically ok to swap an idle card? Will the new card configure itself into TrueIDE mode upon insertion?
I haven't mentioned an operating system on purpose. Host software I can deal with - it's the CF card itself and its IDE connection that I'm concerned about.
Tips, advice, scary stories appreciated.
