Actually, I solved this by just making the BIOS a little bigger.  Myles 
was right to be suspicious of the missing text sections as they were 
getting chopped off due to the BIOS not fitting in the space I alloted 
it in the Config.ld script.  I just upped it from like 48k to 64k and it 
linked just fine.  Thanks for your help though Ron!

Take care,
