The main reason that I wanted to use jffs2 is not to burn out the CF card.
I'm building a fanless Car-pc to track my driving via GPS and dump the
data via wireless when I approach an open access point to my server. I
had a working system at one point, but I was using a laptop harddrive and
either it was the weather or the vibration that killed it, so this time
I'm going solid-state. :)

I'm actually using an old 200Mhz Pentium 1 machine (doesn't rquire a CPU
fan and has a small form-factor). The CF is just hooked to the IDE bus
via an IDE adapter.

Not a bad idea. Thanks!
