The CD boots into Linux. The Linux installation ramdisk is used to
partition, make Hurd filesystems and to unpack the tarball onto a Hurd
HDD partition. The first time the Hurd boots is at the reboot.
The idea is to use the latest Debian installer (Linux) so that when a
native Hurd installer is developed it can be merged into the Debian
My understanding is that GRUB only works on i386 at the moment, which is
great for the Hurd, but not for Linux with multiple architectures.
