Hmm, it seems the idiot's guide is a little outdated but it was still useful.

./MAKEDEV dev1 dev2 dev3
First MAKEDEV says it can't find /proc/devices then it says it doesn't know
how to create dev1 or any of the others.
Also, when running native-install I get about 50 erros during dpkg --pending
--configure "No such file or directory: /dev/fd/4" which /dev/fd is a
symlink to /proc/fd, but there is nothing there. Did I miss something?
I've tried two different methods of installation, the first time I tried
just extracting gnu-xxx.tar.gz into /hurd, but I couldn't get it to boot
into multi-user mode (single worked fine). Then I tried downloading all
the debs and running cross-install, it installed fine but native-install
totally choked with the problems mentioned above.
Is there any updated documentation for this or could someone please help me
get started? This is really frustrating.
