I mean _Mini_ distributions on a single or some 1.44 Mb floppy disks.
usually they can be easyly modified, so you can put on all the tools you
need to install the Hurd

BTW you are new to the Hurd, isn't it? And you like to add good
documentation... I sugest you record every single step you do to get a
running Hurd system, starting at when you first heard of Hurd. It would
be useful for a kind of "debuging" the "newby gets the Hurd runnning
(/starts working on The Hurd)" documentation-guid thing.
just post it at the mailing list.
