A simple CF-MiniPCIe adapter for Asus EEE is probably PATA, and may work in the Mini 9.
"Probably" and "may" are scary words to some. But I consider them encouraging. I shouldn't have to worry about massive hardware failure if it doesn't work ....
should I?

Yes - you could hose the PATA controller. I see no point - it will not work.
