I take it your talking about the older grub booting method using the 
/boot/serverboot.gz like:
        root   (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=hd0s1
        module /boot/serverboot.gz

and the newer method of booting:
        root   (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd2s1
        module /hurd/ext2fs.static \
                --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line} \
                --host-priv-port=${host-port} \
                --device-master-port=${device-port} \
                --exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root} \
                $(task-create) $(task-resume)
        module /lib/ /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

The serverboot.gz is deprecated. The serverboot.gz was used with the 
older GNUMach kernel to load the servers, IIRC there are bootscript(s) 
that now handle the loading of the other servers. So on the newer systems
its not really needed anymore.
