I used : mkelfImage-2.5

The command: 

./objdir/sbin/mkelfImage -t bzImage-i386 --kernel=/home/sagivy/vmlinuz \
	--command-line="console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/hda3" \
	--initrd=/home/sagivy/initrd --output=/home/sagivy/vmlinuz.elf

I had problem in building mkelfImage:

linux-i386/head.S: Assembler messages:
linux-i386/head.S:458: Error: junk at end of line, first unrecognized
character is `U'

So in file convert.h I change from: 


and then it was built.

As I recall, that's a message Etherboot tends to spew when there's
something seriously wrong with the elf image. How did you create the
elf? Which version of mkelfImage (If that's what you used)?
