If you have a GNU/Hurd installation that works you can use it to boot
another GNU/Hurd installation.  This is called a neighbourhurd (the
old name was subhurd, which is wrong).

You can debug all translators in this neighbourhurd by making it pause
at translator startup.

What is the problem you are having, perhaps someone can help you with
