There's no support for a.out images in iPXE (or gPXE).  You could certainly 
define a new image format, but it might make more sense to convert your image 
into something that bootloaders generally know how to handle, such as a 
multiboot image or a bzImage.  That will avoid tying you in to a possibly-
custom version of iPXE.
