I do not think you understood.  The arguments to the kernel when using
serverboot are *different* than those used when loading the Hurd via
multiple modules.  For instance, you might use:

  kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=hd0s10

with serverboot.  However, this is incompatible with the new method.
You must do something along the lines of:

  kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s10

Note the *very* important preface of the string `device:' before the
actual device name.
