Trying to install the Hurd as my VPS

So I'm trying to use the Hurd to run my website: gnu-hurd.com (Currently
debian 9 is serving the site).  When I asked around on #hurd, I was told
that the Hurd can run on a linode.

But does it run well?  What would be the best way install the Hurd on a
VPS?  Is there a VPS somewhere that lets you change the qemu options?  I
found this link that says that the hurd could run on openstack:


But I have no idea what openstack is.  No one understands the cloud.

Update on booting the Hurd from a linode:

I did get my linode to almost boot a Hurd installer image:

SeaBIOS (version rel-1.11.0-0-g63451fca13-prebuilt.qemu-project.org)

iPXE (http://ipxe.org) 00:03.0 CA80 PCI2.10 PnP PMM+3FF914C0+3FEF14C0 CA80

Booting from Hard Disk...

But then it seemed to stop working.  I'll see if it's done connecting tomorrow.

Any suggestions would be most welcome,
