See the multi-boot proposal at:
http://www.uruk.org/grub/boot-proposal.html

Basically, the file just needs an extra header which tells the loader where 
the start of the text and data segments are.
I'm not completely familiar with the GNU tools.  Is this something the linker 
could be forced to do through link script changes?

Getting GrUB working with ELF would be very convenient for loading RTEMs 
images from something like an M-Systems flash disk.
