	Sorry, I didn't know about this, I thought that a "Linux box" as
described by Matthew Vernon in the HTML document "The easy guide to
installing Hurd on a Linux box." could mean any distribution. I use Redhat
Linux, and it does not have dpkg installed. Thanks for the info. Please
let me know where to search for 'dpkg' for RedHat-5.2. 

	Also let me know where I can download the latest HURD and GNUMACH
sources from. The tar.gz packages I downloaded from GNU's FTP site give
errors while unzipping.
