That is pretty sweet. Interestingly, the PCMCIA slots are also bootable and do ATA. With a CF->PCMCIA adapter, you can get the same effect. I built a couple of digital picture frames running OS 9 and JPEGView using this method. At the time (2002-2005 ish), the PC Card adapters were ubiquitous and much cheaper than IDE adapters.

Here is an example (although it uses a full sized ATA flash PC card instead of a CF card, but you get the idea):
