help needed to boot hurd

Hi there,

I'm experiencing trouble installing the hurd. It seems to hang when
starting the filesystem server (ext2fs.static)

Got the hurd system from 


tar.unzip'ed it to an ext2-partition (/dev/hda3 see below)

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1      1216   9767488+  83  Linux
/dev/hda2          1217      1277    489982+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda3   *      1278      1390    907672+  83  Linux

my /boot/grub/menu.lst looks like this (inspired from the info file and


default 1
timeout 5
fallback 0

title Hurd
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/gnumach.gz root=hd0s3
module /hurd/ext2fs.static --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line}
--host-priv-port=${host-port} --device-master-port=${device-port}
--exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root} $(task-create) $(task-resume)
module /lib/ /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

title Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1

#end of menu.lst

So, it doesn't complain about anything, seems to load the 2 modules
allright, but then hangs afterwards (and panics if I touch anything).
