Actually, it did work. By the way, how do I remove a translator?

It was a regular RockRidge extensions format. But it seems to work just
perfect now, with long filenames and stuff.

A first thing I was thinking of is ncftp. Has anybody tried this?
And yeah, another thing; apt-get doesn't seem to know it is running on a
hurd-i386 architecture and therefore tries to download stuff from the
wrong place.. is there a way to work around this? I'm at work now with a
direct connection, so a working apt-get would be real niec.
