Again, if you're using hda4, that translates into Mach hd0s4, *not*

The Hurd doesn't know shadow passwords yet, so you'll have to merge
them back into the passwd file if you want to login to one of those

If you have a recent ext2fsutils (>= version 1.10, I believe), then
you can safely run fsck on your Hurd partition.  Older versions will
clobber all your translators, which will disrupt your Hurd boot
