No, even if the suffix is .bin it is already flashable kernel image, use 
-k option of flasher instead of -F.

I'm not sure which sources were used for your 
os2006-linux-2.6.16+ipv6+ext2+mmc2gb+mmcplus52Mhz-zImage but if it works 
on 2.2006.39 you can use it also on 3.2006.49 (and maybe miss some 
kernel fix). If you currently use it with 1.2006.26 then the image is 
not compatible and you'll get reboot loop when flashed. .26 has kernel 
2.6.16, .39 and .39 has kernel
