It happened to us also. Here's what we did.
The Hurd installation (page 3) says:
grub> kernel /boot/gnumach.gz -s root=device:hd2s1
in our case, we figured out that we don't have to type
the word "device". So in our case we did
grub> kernel /boot/gnumach.gz -s root=hd0s5
Also we used the "menu.lst" example that came with grub on
our Debian Linux and modifed it to reflect our disk.
(Sorry, I don't have it handy at this moment.)
That is, we didn't do it through the command line
like the example but directly use grub menu.
It works like a charm.
When we tried through the command line, it didn't work
and just sat there doing nothing.
When we touched the keyboard, it panic exactly like your case.
