I'm using this commands in linux shell:

$ powerpc-rtems-objcopy -O binary --strip-unneeded hello.exe hello.bin
$ mkimage -A ppc -O rtems -T kernel -a 0x100 -e 0x10000 -n "RTEMS" \
      -C none -d hello.bin hello.img

and then load "hello.img" with U-Boot: tftpboot; bootm

mkimage --- is an utility provided with U-Boot (look inside tools directory).
