Good that Elbox put a picture at last.
Many people thought that the CF/Sata interface was embedded on the FastATA board and not in external adapters.

Is there going to be an offer for owners of older FastATA 4000 to buy the new BootROM chip and/or buy the SATA & CF adaptors with the ribbon cable?  

Another dumb question:  What about the FastATA 1200?  Will the BootROM also be upgraded, too?
