If it helps, I've managed to boot a Lexar Media 256MB CF card using
the 1.22 BIOS (OpenBSD 3.4 on a net4801). I haven't heard anyone
mention the Lexar Media card on the list yet, so it's probably
rare enough for us to assume that other CF cards will also boot.

Haven't tested it extensively though.
