Usually a bootblock virus does not infect files and vice versa, so it cannot be on the CF. The virus is on your boot disk, if it is a floppy disk. And it stays in memory once you booted from this disk, so you need to switch off the computer in order to clean the memory.

You can boot from a (copy of a) non-infected disk, then copy the CF drivers from the infected disk to the uninfected disk, accurately taking care not to reset the computer while the infected disk is in the drive.

Perhaps you already have an uninfected boot disk with a virus checker which can detect and kill the virus from memory (and disk). This would make things a lot easier.
