This somewhat older article seems to state it's possible to use generic Flash cards: http://packetlife.net/blog/2009/nov/2/generic-compact-flash-cards-and-cisco/

Personally I've never tried it because I didn't need to, doesn't mean I wouldn't try it though ...

i've used a range of generic CF cards in all my 2800 series routers without a problem.  Cisco are within their right to refuse support for the device if its likely the non-genuine part is causing the issue.  That said, the 2800's are EOL so no support anyway.  So buy the generic stuff.  I'd also go for at least 512M.

I personally use a 1GB SanDisk Ultra II in my 2801 router with no issues at all. I highly recommend it.
