I've added sections at the bottom of the wiki page for user success /
failure reports. The idea is that if you have a specific combination of
hardware that actually works, you can list it here and make it easy for
new users to find a similar setup instead of using the trial-and-error

If anyone has a working Hurd install, please add a line with your
hardware setup to the success section.

I believe it was a 20 or 30GB drive. Unfortunately, I tossed it back
into a container with many other unused drives and I'm not certain which
it was. If I get a chance to do some testing, I'll post the results in
the wiki.
