Bootstraping the Hurd

I am experiencing some bootstrapping problems with the Hurd, I try to boot it inside Virtual PC on a Mac. After preparing a root volume (ext2fs, 800Mb) I try to boot the kernel with GRUB (I use a GRUB image from http://
These are the grub commands I type:

grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s1 (the root filesystem is /dev/hda1 under linux) grub> module (hd0,0)/hurd/ext2fs.static --multiboot-command-line=$ {kernel-command-line} \
 --host-priv-port=${host-port} \
 --device-master-port=${device-port} \
 --exec-server-task=${exec-task}  \
 -T typed ${root} $(task-create) $(task-resume)

grub> module (hd0,0)/lib/ /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)
grub> boot

After typing "boot" the system hangs and reboots after a while. I am quite lost at this point. Is there
something I did wrong? How can I debug this?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Merry Christmas to all of you :)
