The answers are yes and yes :D You can use whatever size compactflash you'd like, right now it's 2GB if I'm not mistaken (CF type I is the most comonly used, type II is a little fatter, and not every cameras support this). Compactflash will use up more battery than the internal memory, but the internal memory doesn't really holdthat many pictures to begin with. Compactflash shouldn't be using up that much more battery power than the internal memory, perhaps in your enthusiasm you've been using the lcd screen a lot more for taking pictures or reviewing them? :)
