I don't understand why removed the files. These are nodes where glibc
expects to find these servers.

I'm not sure what you mean. But to setup networking, you should
recreate the files you've deleted.

moritz@hurd:~$ ls -l /servers/socket/
total 0
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       0,   0 Oct 13 16:20 1
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root       0,   0 Oct 13 16:20 2
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            1 Oct 13 16:20 inet -> 2
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            1 Oct 13 16:20 local -> 1

To enable local sockets of the PF_LOCAL familiy, you should set up
pflocal: settrans -fg /servers/socket/1 /hurd/pflocal

What exactly do you want to know?

Hmm. At least, gnumach contains drivers for it, try if they work for
you (I had problems with such a card). Does gnumach detect the card at
bootup? You can read the boot messages from /dev/klog (translated to
'/hurd/streamio kmsg') - but only once.

If the card is detected, you can try to setup networking via
installing the pfinet server. Check it's --help switch and/or the Hurd
Installation guides, which explain how to do that.
