Which Rebel SLR has flash memory?

I think he means replace a CF card with an SD card.

 

OP, you can do it with an adapter, but it's a bad idea. The card is one item whose failure is catastrophic to any photo shoot, and adapters are simply not reliable enough to be worth the risk. We've dealt with many queries and complaints from users whose problems can be traced to unreliable adapters. CF cards are by no means obsolete; the best professional-grade cameras still accept them. An adapter to make a CF card unnecessary is a solution in search of a problem.

Makes sense. I was envisioning hard wired memory.
