This will happen if you don't press the 'c' key (for command
mode) when the GRUB menu is displayed; remember you have to do this
when you are booting using GRUB, if you have not already changed its
default settings; still it will prompt you to enter the pathname of the
file servers.boot, just type /dev/hd2s1/boot/servers.boot.

This could be due to a corrupt .deb file, for safety reasons,
download each file once again, and don't use the .debs from the GNU/Linux
distribution; they won't work.

The script 'cross-install' has to run succesfully, if it doesn't
then try running again; but keep it in mind that even if this script runs
perfectly, it does not mean that everything is OK; you have to cross
Good Luck ...
