How do I put a kernel beyond 1Meg??  Will it work with mknbi-linux,

I'm using an M-Systems' DiskOnChip 2000 flash, which puts something in
the EBDA, which means that it occupies the area of around 0x9000 (I
don't remember or know the exact location).

This is exactly the area of the EBDA.  Why is changing the RELOCADDR of
linux-nbi not a good idea?  Is it easy?
