Yes I have, thank you.  It worked fine for me, too(except for the
mentioned boot problem - which I still have).  I really liked
cross-install getting all the necessary files for me, once I figured

more people to install the HURD if there would be a more obvious way
to go!?  It is just an idea, though.
