I used mkElfImage ver 2.7 to create a single bootable elf image with this syntax
 sudo mkelfImage --command-line="ro root=/dev/hd1 quiet splash console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8" --kernel=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.20-16-generic --initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.20-16-generic --output=/boot/linuxTest_2.6-generic.elf

The resultant image is about 8MB (ubuntu). Because of the size I think we
cannot flash it on the bios chip.
How do I use this image in linuxbios to boot the OS?  Not finding much
documentaion on this. Currently I'm using FILO as my payload.
