Hi All,

I have compiled hello.bin and I want to run it through grub menu or prompt. This
is what I am doing :
1. putting hello.bin in /boot/ folder
2. on grub prompt : grub -> set root=(hd0,1)
                    grub -> linux /boot/hello.bin
3. When it tries to run linux /boot/hello.bin I get following error :

"invalid magic number".

Can anybody suggest what can be wrong here?
