I'm somewhat confused here. "linux" is the ELF file, right?  The  why
do you "cp linux /tftpboot/linux.bin"? It's NOT a binary file...

And which "linux.bin" is used  here  -  the  binary  image  from  the
"objcopy" step, or the ELF file from the "cp" step?

And what are the exact error messages?

Arrghh... Why do I have to ask for each line of information?

And what are the exact error messages?
