I was considering similar scenarios with my setup as well since it could have been a long time before I settled on the right CF card. One of the possibilities I had in mind was this:
And then something really old and perhaps not worth the time at all:
Ahhh...I believe you are also talking about ParNET. I still have a ParNET cable in a box somewhere but I did not label it properly. It could just be a standard parallel cable and I know hooking that up between computers could be damaging. Actually, this was intended for use between TWO Amiga computers. Since I only have one REAL Amiga (the A500), the other one would have to be WinUAE. I somehow doubt there is ParNET support for WinUAE since the built-in bsdsocket library networking is so successful.

Otherwise it's just as easy to wait for your CF and then just write the latest flash.
