  This is a correct table:

Linux   GRUB    Mach/Hurd (ext2fs)   Mach/Hurd (ufs)

hda     (hd0)   hd0                  hd0
hda1    (hd0,0) hd0s1                hd0a
hda2    (hd0,1) hd0s2                hd0b

  The questions of device-naming are too many. Is it better to change
how to name devices? Especially, the difference between ext2fs
partition and ufs partition is confusing for Hurd beginners.
