Debian/Hurd won't boot

I'm interested in experimenting with GNU/Hurd and am now trying to install it as second system on my PC. I followed the instructions for Debian GNU/Hurd:

(using a downloaded fresh .tgz file not a CD)

As native system, I'm running i686-gnu-linux and GRUB legacy (0.97) as bootloader.

When I try to boot mach / the Hurd as described, I get some output first but after about 10 seconds the machine automatically reboots (thus it seems as if the bootstrap panic'ed or something like that); the screen prints something about ext2fs.static, but it goes away immediatelly so I unfortunatelly can't tell what the message is exactly about...

The documentation suggests that a common problem is shared IRQs, I checked /proc/interrupts on my GNU/Linux system:

  0:     313630   IO-APIC-edge      timer
  1:         10   IO-APIC-edge      i8042
 11:       2354   IO-APIC-fasteoi   acpi
 12:        123   IO-APIC-edge      i8042
 14:      42852   IO-APIC-edge      ide0
 15:         33   IO-APIC-edge      ide1
 17:          0   IO-APIC-fasteoi   ndiswrapper
 18:          0   IO-APIC-fasteoi   SiS SI7012
 19:      12044   IO-APIC-fasteoi   eth0
 20:       3509   IO-APIC-fasteoi   ohci_hcd:usb2
 21:      12586   IO-APIC-fasteoi   ohci_hcd:usb3
 23:          3   IO-APIC-fasteoi   ehci_hcd:usb1
NMI:          0   Non-maskable interrupts
LOC:         30   Local timer interrupts
RES:          0   Rescheduling interrupts
CAL:          0   function call interrupts
TLB:          0   TLB shootdowns
TRM:          0   Thermal event interrupts
SPU:          0   Spurious interrupts
ERR:          0
MIS:          0

If I interpret this correctly, the first columns are the IRQs and none is shared? Or am I missing something?

What's the problem with this, any suggestions how I could get the Hurd booting?

Thank you very much,
