See the multi-boot proposal at:
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?
I took a quick look at that web site, and I believe the necessary
information could be generated via a linker script.
On the other hand, it should be possible to make GRUB recognize ELF
files even if they aren't multiboot files.
