I have been confused by the two different ways, one using a tarball and the
other using Debian-packages, I find it hard to see which instruction belongs
I think the easiest instruction is 
a) grab the tarball
b) move it to it´s own partition (explain size and naming ...)
c) make a grub-bootfloppy
d) boot it

What I´m also missing is the relation between the Hurd and gnumach (I don´t
fully understand it myself), who of the two is doing what. Maybe also add some
other vital things and their relationships to each other.

Disclaimer: I haven´t yet run the Hurd and this is probably pretty much
i386-centered. I´m still only learning on this topic.

There´s also http://hurddocs.sourceforge.net , maybe you should join forces.
