You can do this with "settrans -ac /floppy /hurd/ext2fs /dev/fd0".

I assume that it is an ext2fs floppy.  You need GNUMach from CVS to do
this, there were problems with the glue code in GNUMach 1.3 and the
floppy size is not correctly recognized because of that.

To checkout the latest 1.x version of GNUMach, use:

export CVS_RSH="ssh"
cvs -z3 co gnumach -r 

You can also try oskit-mach, that uses linux 2.2 drivers.

Did you read the Hurd install guide?

Make sure you use in your sources.list.
