any chance of putting the virtual disk somewhere for download 
so that people can play with hurd? I can provide diskspace.

I was trying to install hurd under vmware today (what a coincidence :-))
but not having virtual linux, neither space for it, I tried
to untar the gnu file onto /dev/nb0, all went well but after some
files (at random point) the whole host computer just froze...
opened network connections worked, but alt+sysrq did not. 
I will try later with some linux mini-distributions under vmware, but
a ready hurd virtual disk will be helpful :-)
