Actually, after I told iPhoto to go away, I did a
"mv [camera mount dir]/DCIM/100NIKON/* ~/hunting/eglin_range/" ... so the
images were deleted.  Then, after seeing that they'd been nuked
(apparently by iPhoto), I copied them back, and that's when I saw them
display correctly for a fraction of a second, and then have the bottom
80% or so go to noise, and last night, re-formatted the CF card).  I DO
still have the saved images on my Mac, though.  Oh, and I do know that
the images were all fine (viewed on my camera) before iPhoto tried to
grab them.

So, can Foremost still help?  Or are these just lost (not a huge issue,
but still I'd like to be able to recover them)?
