Well, _making_ the image is easy. the mkimage tool will happily
combine any files you pass to it into one multifile image (MFI).
But _using_ such a MFI is a different issue. So far, PPCBoot
understands only one format of MFIs, which consist of a Linux kernel
image as the first part and a ramdisk image as the second part. This
is being handled buy the "bootm" command.
So far, there is no other support for MFIs.

A script is a text file containing commands. The syntax is the same
as on the command line interface. Actually this is what happens: the
script will be passed to the command line interpreter, line by line.
