When I looked at the installed tarball with Linux I saw /target/gnu/boot.
In fact all the root system was mounted on /target/gnu/ and not /target/
/target was the mount-point for the HURD partition.
What I did was to move the whole root file system to / which made things a
lot easier. I was working with an installation ram-disk when I did this.
