You probably got confused a bit then, the serverboot method is obsolete,
and the multiboot method should be used, someone should update the manual.

I see, you could try the oskit branch of GNUMach where it uses the drivers
that are located in OSKit, and see if that will work.  There will be a change
to using OSKit in the near future and any hacking on the old branch shouldn't
be done.  Search the archives if you want more information about oskit and
the oskit-branch of GNUMach...
