An alternative I found would be one of those CF adapters that plug into an 8-bit slot. I could then use it as a hard drive. Any recommendations?

Almost all early Compaqs used "Softpaqs" (setup floppies). It's still available from Compaq/HP's website (FTP). As for the FDD, you'd somehow need to change the format in the setup with th ...
