8088 Boot Code

Hey Guys,

I have a 8088-based system built and I am trying to test my hardware with software. Because the 8088's startup location is 7F0, it has 16 bytes of remaining memory locations available for access.

I am using NASM for an assembler and it does not allow multiple ORG directives. How would I command the assembler and the 8088 to jump to the 'top' of memory (00000h) once it has reached FFFFF?
