Creating boot/kernel image from ELF-files

Hello everyone.

I trying to make a program which makes a bootable disk from the contents
of to executable ELF-files. One is the bootloader, the other is a simple OS-kernel. I've figured out pretty much everything I need to do except this one thing called "padding". I have been told that i need to pad the segments of the ELF-file before copying them to the image-file. But I have not been able to figure out what this means. Anyone out there that can explain this to me?

Thank you.
