Hiya everyone,

I just got a 4501 board and tried out m0n0wall on it to make sure all is
working. Everything seemed to be intact so I put the CF card back into
my main machine. Except now I can't read the CF chip anymore. Linux
detects it as normal, but fdisk doesn't seem to want to play:

[root at beastie root]# fdisk /dev/hdb
Unable to read /dev/hdb

I tried dd'ing the whole disk but that didn't make any difference.
Anyone seen this behaviour before? Any solutions or might the chip be
