In that case I will stick with debian.org, it will save me work. I will
include gnu.org as the extras. I will make certain that there are no
symlinks this time.

I will grab it when it is available.

Still not working. I ran ./native-install twice.
Rebooted (single user), ran export TERM=mach, and cd /dev
ran ./MAKEDEV /dev/hd1
ls showed hd1 had been created
ran settrans /cdrom /dev/hd1 /cdrom
this seemed OK
ran mount -t isofs /dev/hd1 /cdrom
ran cd /cdrom
/hurd/isofs: /dev/hd1: Device not configured
cd /cdrom: Translator died.
Any ideas? Frustration!! The .debs could be copied from the CD onto the
Hurd partition to get dpkg/dselect working. Ugly.
