Hi Jamie,

I happen to have Belkin CF card reader (http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=&Section_Id=200516&pcount=&Product_Id=122859&Section.Section_Path=%2FROOT%2FUSB%2FMediaReaders%2Fct_Id%3E#) that works without problems. It's USB 1.1 so not too fast. Works with RH 9, Fedora Core 2 and 3.

My motherboard is Epox 8KHA+ with latest BIOS -- I had to update BIOS because when the card reader was plugged in during reboot and a CF card was in, BIOS hanged. Had to remove flash card and reboot again. No problem after BIOS upgrade.
