They have a boot track like a floppy. So if they are formatted right, with a fairly good card.device running them, no hardware issues (PCMCIA port can be dead, y'know) you can install them

Install CC0:
They don't have any boot track and you can't "install CC0:" because they aren't mounted on CC0:. CC0: is for old-style PCMCIA flash and SRAM cards and not for compact flash cards, which instead use CF0: which defaults to using FAT filesystem. You can't install an Amiga bootblock on that, and you can't boot from the anyway since the driver isn't ROM resident.
