The raw image is most appealing to me rather than a filesystem.  It's simple
and easy.  I don't know much about ELF headers.

My systems can only boot from the hdd, the network is not always in use.  I
was under the impression Etherboot was for only for networks.  I assume
Etherboot within Linuxbios is the option USE_TFTP.  How does the disk/net
multiplex work? I am not familiar with that.
