This isn't a topic that can be easily explained in a few mail messages.

There is a book authored by John R Levine _Linkers and Loaders_.  I haven't
read it myself, but I hear it is very good.

You can find useful info in the various IA-64 ABI documents.  The psABI and
the Software Conventions and Runtime Architecture documents in particular.
These are available via download from the Intel web page for Itanium.
See also the ELF standard (gABI), which is available from SCO/Caldera.

You can also learn a bit by using objdump and readelf to pretty print the
contents of an ELF file.  You can also learn a lot by spending time looking
at and/or tracing through the GNU ld sources, though this may take some time.
