have you tried netbooting and installing from a netbooted kernel?
it will then use the bios values from COMbios, so might work.
(and netbooting will at least let you play with the cf card in situ).
I suppose you could also try changing the mbr so that it dosn't have more
that 256 secs/cylinders, incase there is an 8 bit limitation of that field
in the bios.
