Hi -

I actually had this same problem this weekend trying to install from the "Easy
Guide".  All I did was uncompress gnumach.gz.  Then, the filename in the "kernel="
command is correct.  I'd think that you could also specify "gnumach.gz" in the
"kernel=" command, although I didn't try that.

good luck!
