  That is not correct. GRUB loads gnumach and serverboot, and tells
gnumach where the module serverboot is in the core. Then GNU Mach
initializes the internal information and the device drivers, and then
executes serverboot. The module serverboot analyses the configuration
file servers.boot, start the fs server specified in servers.boot and

  Read the source code for serverboot and init, for more information.
