Hi Wiekus,

You said Mach hangs after floppy detection?

well this is what usualy follows:

        Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
        FDC 0 is a National Semiconductor PC87306
        Failed initialization of WD-7000 SCSI card!

I think the FDC message is for the floppy, is this the last
message you see?

if so it's likely crashing on the WD-7k probe. try cross-compiling [1] GNU Mach
while disabling WD-7000 support [2].

why "Debian HURD"? as a whole it's the GNU system distributed by Debian [3]
