Uncompressing kernel image problem

You are trying to uncompress a kernel that is 667kB compressed in only
16kB of space (0 - 0x4000)

Try bootm 0x400000 instead.

I have the problem of uncompressing Kernel Image. I used /tools/mkimage
ppcboot-1.1.6 to create vmlinux.ppcboot from vmlinux.gz. Then I
vmlinux.ppcboot to vmlinux.srec using "objcopy -I binary -O srec
vmlinux.ppcboot vmlinux.srec" and finally load vmlinux.srec to memory
0x4000 using "loads 0x4000". I tried to boot the image and received
following message:

=> bootm 0x4000
## Booting image at 00004000 ...
   Image Name:   linuxppc_2_4_galileo
   Image Type:   PowerPC Linux Kernel Image (gzip compressed)
   Data Size:    683041 Bytes = 667 kB = 0 MB
   Load Address: 00000000
   Entry Point:  00000000
   Verifying Checksum ... OK
   Uncompressing Kernel Image ... Error: inflate() returned -3
GUNZIP ERROR - must RESET board to recover

Does anyone know what happened?
