Using ADLO with Linuxbios

I give the following options in my config file

	option BOOT_IDE=1
	option IDE_BOOT_DRIVE=2
	option ONE_TRACK=32
	commandline root=/dev/hda2 console=ttyS0,115200 console=tty0
	option USE_ELF_BOOT=1

Is this correct if I want Linuxbios to directly boot the elfimage?
However when I try to build linuxbios using these options I get an error-
file linux.bin not found. Now why does it look for this file.
	Do I need to specify some payload in the config file. what payload is it?

I made a mistake. Sorry. This is what I had to do.

dd if=elfImage of=/dev/hda bs=4096 seek=1

This leaves partition tables, mbr, etc. intact.
