I have one of the "Damn Small" nano boxes, and just got my CF adapter in. The CF Adapter has a place for power (floppy style). But I see no where on the board to supply the power? How do I get power to the adapter ?

I would make a trip to the local parts store and buy the 4 wire power to 2 wire power adapter. Its a 5 volt adapter. If you have an old computer laying around, you could make one if you are handy with tools.

The CF card adapters have a floppy style power connector, which is 12 volts. If the motherboard or power supply module has a power connector for a floppy drive, then you could use that.
