NAME

       mkelfImage - make an elf network bootable image for linux

SYNOPSIS

       mkelfImage [--command-line=command line] [--kernel=path to vmlinux]
       [--ramdisk=path to ramdisk] [--output=file] [--ramdisk-base=<start
       addr>]

DESCRIPTION

       mkelfImage is a program that makes a elf boot image for linux kernel
       images.  The image should work with any i386 multiboot compliant boot
       loader, an ELF bootloader that passes no options, a loader compliant
       with the linuxBIOS elf booting spec or with the linux kexec kernel
       patch.  A key feature here is that nothing relies upon BIOS calls, but
       they are made when necessary.  This is useful for systems running
       linuxbios.

BUGS

       Not all kernel parameters can be passed with the multiboot image
       format.  ip configuration is not automatically passed to a node.  The
       ramdisk base is hard coded to 8MB by default.  This man page need to be
       updated.

       standard.
