I have a problem with booting Hurd from IDE secondary master.
It's Grub name is hd1, root= (hd1,0). GNUmach and serverboot starts,
and then serversboot can't find it's configuration script at
All other device names don't work too.
Why? Is it GNUmach bug?
The way partitions are named is a bit confusing. While the drive
numbers are 0-based (hd0, hd1, hd2, etc.) the partitions are 1-based
(hd2s1, hd2s2, etc.) So you probably have to specify
/dev/hd2s1/boot/servers.boot if the configuration script is located on
the first partition of the master drive on the secundary IDE interface
(hd2s1 corresponds to hdc1 on Linux).
