I think you are looking for 

  'cd /dev;./MAKEDEV -v hd2'

Your boot log should show it

hd0: HITACHI_DK23CA-30B, 7559MB w/2048kB Cache, CHS=1023/240/63, UDMA

You may have to initiate a /dev/klog to see that by doing the

settrans -fgc /dev/klog /hurd/streamio kmsg

cat /dev/klog > $CONSOLE_LOG &
CAT=$!; sleep 5; kill $CAT

If you have  a network connection apt-get  is a powerful  installation

see the installation manual for details.

I  have  this problem with the  default  mount binary. I  found if you
build it w/o optimization it doesn't hang, or if you are mounting :-)
