I agree. They work. Gordon, there is still a file overlap with

Horror Shock! These scripts are ancient, and shouldn´t be used any more.
I have not looked at your modifications, but please don´t use them,
don´t put them online and don´t reference them by links.

I wrote shiny and great dpkg-hurd, cross-install and native-install
scripts, which work much much better. They are in contrib/marcus on

Mmmh. Maybe my upload is a bit broken, but it is not important.

Multi user boot does not work cleanly right now. fsck will complain, (it
is started in some script at an obscure location), and then it goers to
single user. BUT after logging out of single user, you should enter
multi user boot w/o problems.

Please get my new scripts, John. You would do me and yourself a favour.
I don´t want to see any script with a "_" :)
