The zImage is a relocating, "self extracting" file.  Remove the 64K
ELF header from the beginning of the file, load the resuling bag of
bits at or above 0x200000, and jump to that location.  The "bootloader"
will start, request kernel start options, uncompress the kernel to
address zero, and start it.

This has all been discussed many times, along with different booting
options.  Search the mailing list kernel for more information.
