I'm quiet sure that this can't be. I played arround with several CFLAG 
options (-Os, -marchi486 etc.) and with several -DPXELDR_ALWAYS_SERIAL 
etc. so I'm sure I had tested some dozends of different pxeboot binaries.
And I can't imagine that corrupted source file can cause such an error, 
remember that all these pxeboot binaries worked fine on PIII boxes, just 
not with the Elan SC520.
I'm glad that it works now, but it was really interesting what in the chain 
of libs/dependend boot/loader stuff was the reason...

Thanks for your help,
