Argl, nobody took the time to update these, including myself. This is
now done (but not updated on the websites yet). Basically, don't follow
the second link any more, it's all done for you already (except that you
probably have broken things already, more about it below).

Which probably means the DDE driver just didn't find your device.  Or
perhaps simply lacks the firmware. Use the following to get debugging
information from the DDE driver:

settrans -fgap /dev/netdde /hurd/netdde

and then kill any devnode and pfinet process to let them restart with
the newer netdde.

You also need to drop the /dev/netdde node.  And rather not recreate the
/dev nodes yourself, better simply call dpkg-reconfigure hurd which will
do it for you (unless something is there already, that's why you should
remove them before calling it).
