I played with this a bit, but not Gentoo and not JFFS2. :)  It was a
stripped custom RedHat AS3 image on a 4 GB CF.

  Why do you want to use it?  Most CF controllers do internal block
remapping so just stick ext2 (or ext3 -journal) on it and you're good to

I would think that any box primitive enough to where you'd need JFFS2,
you wouldn't have an IDE interface to your CF.  I could be wrong though.

For the Gentooing, I'd probably build a chroot environment on a build
server, get it all built and prettied up, then rsync the image minus
portage directories onto the CF.
