Has anyone tried to partition a 8Gb SDHC card into 2 4gb spaces?  Would I be able to format the 1st partition in FAT16 mode and force it to be bootable?
Most cameras has multipartition support, this is used by thousands of CHDK users...

Does anyone know if I can change the location of where CHDK will write the images to the 2nd partition?
With a multipartition setup, CHDK use the first partition only for start up, then the 2nd partition stores all data.

I have been using 4Gb Non-HC SD cards formatted at FAT16 for my Powershot S80 fine but my SD cards are started to die and replacements are hard to find.

BUT: Your S80 DOES NOT support SDHC cards, so you're limited to 4GB SD cards !
This is a limitation of the camera hardware / Canon firmware, CHDK can't change this.
