portable MP3 players

I'm looking for a small (tiny) MP3 player that takes Compact Flash cards, so I can use left over ones from my digital camera.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Most of them have built in memory or use smaller memory cards. The built in hard drive ones are still too pricey for me. I'm looking for cheap(ish), since I won't be using it often.
Thanks

I'm currently thinking hard about the Dell DJ, but that doesn't help you because it doesn't have what you want.

I personally love the Portable Sony Minidisc walkmans, you can get around 5 hours on 1 disc with great quality and the 1 AA batery lasts FORVER! Still isn't what you were looking for, but I just thought I would mention it :)

Jason, I have a Sony MD-Z1 NET MD Minidisc player. I know they rock. :)
However, I think a MP3 player is a better solution for me, as I can put a 1gb CF card in it, and not have to carry around minidiscs.

I'm selling my MD-Z1, wanna buy it? :)

Kelvin, that looks like it might be what I want. I'll do some homework on it and report.
