yup. everything seems to be running fine. haven't had much in the way of
crashes, network's up and i'm very impressed with how the servers work upon
the mach kernel. only thing that stops me using it regularly is the lack of
apps for it. i'm a lil miffed that i don't seem to have multiple terminals to
work from, but i'm sure it'll be implemented if it's not already.

the hurd installation guide thingie that i found at the gnu site helped heaps.
the cross compiler required me to install more than i probably would have liked
to, but it still seems to work well. grub is nice too. hell, the whole thing's
nice, it just needs more apps and i can't wait til it gets them =>
