I did use m68k-rtems-objcopy when I tried to convert it. It just gave me an unknown 
file type error. I tried using a bunch of different file types, but none of them would 
work. I also tried to read the file with readelf and m68k-rtems-objdump but neither 
would read the file so i figure it's not an elf file. I also used the file command to try and 
see what type of file it is, but it just said that it was a data file. Thanks for your reply.
