I looked at the CDR and DVD drive, the CDR is set to MASTER and the DVD to SLAVE, the two HD is also set MASTER and SLAVE.

I also tried to install this on a old Pentium 166 I have lying around with the same problem, it detects the SCSI CD-ROM drive and then sits there (I left it for more than two hours)...

What am I missing?

I had the same problem the first time I tried to install the Hurd. After
some diagnostics it appeared that my cdrom drive was for no reason
whatsoever factory-set to "cable select".  After changing the setting to
"master" the problem went away.

I waited for 30 minutes for the next prompt before terminating with a
key stroke. There must be something about the hardware that the kernel
does not like, what is the next step in the boot process it might throw
some light on what my problem is...

About 10 seconds, the install is on a 1.8Ghz P4 though... I will retry
the install and leave it longer to see if it goes passed this point...

The kernel starts booting but every time it only gets to the floppy
drive detection message, after which it just stops, when I press a key
the kernel dies with a panic statement and reboots...

How long did you wait before pressing the key?  On a slow machine, it
will take a few seconds until the next message gets displayed at that
