Are you sure that you have connected the device as /dev/hdd that should
be secondary channel slave drive.

How did you format the cf card?

hi neon,
           Make sure the cf is connected as hdd.One sure test is as
follows:
At the grub prompt press the c key to get the grub command prompt.issue
the following command (assuming the ext2 fs is in the hd1 partition.)

grub>cat (hd3,0)/boot/<Press tab now>

If the info given by u is correct then the drive should be showing the
contents of the /boot
directory.Else try changing the numbers.

3=>secondary slave and 0=>1st partition in it.
