(Hoping this goes into the correct thread)

You are correct, romimage is what you need to burn. 

About the ELF image thing--The payload is indeed an ELF image, and 
LinuxBIOS uses "elfboot" to boot it. The payload can be a normal Linux 
kernel made bootable by the mkelfImage utility ( 
ftp://ftp.lnxi.com/pub/mkelfImage/ ), a FILO image 
( http://te.to/~ts1/filo/ ), or an Etherboot image ( 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/etherboot/ ). Perhaps someone more 
experienced with this can explain in further detail.

>>It is flashable with any kind AWARD MS-DOS tool ?

You should probably try to use with Flash 'n Burn (Check 
the original freebios tree) or Linux memory technology devices (MTD -- 
http://www.linux-mtd.infradead.org/ ). Sure beats booting off a FreeDOS
