Re: "New" Installation Method of the Hurd, please tes, develop and comment

  Someone also mentioned that it might be possible to boot the Hurd from a
subdirectory of an ext2 filesystem (as if it were in a chrooted environment..)

  What's the status of that?  (and if support isn't explicitly there..does
chroot work in the Hurd, and could we use
bootcommand='/usr/local/hurd/bin/chroot /usr/local/hurd /bin/init' to boot up?
Would the Hurd's extended filesystem data (translators and so on) mess up the
ext2 filesystem that was already there?)
