since reinstalling on my old memory machine is a dead-end, I tried another route: I took the disk from my PII machine to another box, which has 1GB of RAM, 1.6GHz processor but still has PATA so I could attach my disk. Since the old box did run HURD for years, I hope it will become usable again once reinstalled.

Installation on the fast box (an IBM NetVista) went quite fine, I could also use the pseudo-graphical install. Everything is faster of course, no problem with drivers and it installed GRUB and all packages.

However, at reboot, after GRUB, the machine hangs! Exactly in the same place!

The installer doesn't install also the debug kernel by default, right?

Out of curiosity, I took the HD and put it in the original machine an there it just self-reboots instead of displaying GRUB. This is much worse than before :(
