Regular CF works fine.
CF's interface is ATA, so you can drop it in to a PATA hole with a  
very simple adapter.

There are plenty of "network appliance" boxes that are designed for  
this sort of thing with lots of network holes mounted on the front and  
so on. Lots of them have CF card slots on the front as well, just like  
many router vendors do.
