Please check your /etc/fstab entries under the Hurd.  You most likely
have linux-style device names there.

Another possibility is that you do not have the devices for your other
partitions set up.  Go to /dev and do:

./MAKEDEV hd0s1
./MAKEDEV hd0s2
... etc. ...
for each of your partitions (obviously use YOUR OWN DEVICE NAME -- this
will vary based on how you partitioned your drive).
