I boot a server from a Compact Flash drive connected to a CF->SATA
adaptor. Its only 4GB, enough to boot, and then all my read/write
partititons come from several terrabytes of attached zpool. It
works excellently, and was very cheap to setup. Performance is
fine as you are almost never writing to the flash drive. The only
time I notice the slowdown is when doing an installworld or installkernel.
