Do flash disks support Linux at all?
Does anybody installed Linux to flash disks (for ex. to produced by SanDisk
 Inc. or M-Systems Inc.)  ?

If yes, please E-mail me.

We use ATA-Flashdisks from SanDisk as root-device for something you could
call an embedded system. Put them in a PCMCIA-Slot, and they behave as
removable IDE-Disk (under Linux, W95 seems to treat them differently).
In the target system they connect directly to an IDE-connector.
