You might guess what to do from the last lines of your message. I don't know 
why this hasn't been fixed in the "Easy guide" (maybe you're looking at the 
old version of it), but you are supposed to give 
GRUB the full name of the gnumach kernel, that is:
kernel=/boot/gnumach.gz root=... -s
the same goes for serverboot:
If you get problems after that try upgrading to the latest version of GRUB, 
you can find it in the www.gnu.org site.
