Kexec problem

Hi. I downloaded kexec-tools. When I'm trying to reboot my PC through kexec it fails with an error: Invalid argument. Could you tell me what this means? Or is this insufficient?

Sorry. I forgot to mention. I compiled kernel 2.6.13 WITH kexec support

The command was(as root, of course):
./kexec /boot/linux-2.6.13

The output was:

kexec_load failed: Invalid argument
entry = 0x91f34
nr_segments = 2
segment[0].buf = 0x80B7480
segment[0].bufsz = 2050
segment[0].mem = 0x90000
segment[0].memsz = 2050
segment[1].buf = 0xB7CF6008
segment[1].bufsz = 268A2B
segment[1].mem = 0x100000
segment[1].memsz = 268A2B
