 Thanks for the report.  This is what mopchk says about the image:

Checking: vmlinux.SYS
RSX Image
Header Block Count: 0
Image Size:         00000000
Load Address:       00000000
Transfer Address:   00000000

No wonder it cannot be booted -- the header states the file's size is
zero.

 That's enough, thanks.  It seems I was a bit too optimistic in the
assumption a traditional MOP image header contains a correct image size --
I'll implement a fallback to the file's size if the header contains null
size.

 Since I'll be away till Tuesday, expect an update in the middle of the
next week.  I'm assuming ELF loading works, right?

  Maciej
