it's ancient. I had a build for 256KB, and only had a 512KB lying around, 
so I guess I did this:
cat img img > img2

give it a shot. 

You can also put an elfimage at the start of flash and leave the linuxbios 
at the end unchanged, i.e. use dd to cat off the last 64BK as the startup 
code, and then put different payloads at the front. 

just an idea.
