>I wish I knew how to create devices for my HDD and my different

>for info: my HDD is an IDE disk, which is master on the first IDE bus

> the partition for the HURD is hd0s7, my swap is (will be) hd0s2...

1. Go to /dev
2. Next run './MAKEDEV hd0s2' for your swap.
3. And add line to /etc/fstab with swap information like in your linux fstab
but use 'hd0s2" instead of '/dev/hda2'
4. Reboot your machine.
5. Enjoy your hurd swap.
