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
	segmentation fault
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.
