  Could post the lines you used to boot the GNU Hurd.  If you used
pdf version of the install guide then you will have to read one of
other versions of the install guide and get the entire lines needed
boot the Hurd.

  Would it be a good idea to remove the pdf version of the install
guide since the pdf version only shows the first seventy some
characters of each line.
