You can download the VMware virtual disk, along with a few other
files, from ftp://melkor.dnp.fmph.uniba.sk/pub/incoming. The files to
hurd.dsk is about 150 MB, so beware!
Here's what to do with the files:
* mkdir vmware-hurd
* cd vmware-hurd
* vmware hurd.cfg
Start VMware's configuration editor, and change the following things:
* the full name of the hurd.dsk file (this is ide0:0)
* the full name of the swap.dsk file (this is ide0:1); you'll need to
click the "create" button to create this file
* the full name of the grub image (this is floppy0)
Then boot the thing and you should be up and running! The root
password is empty, by the way.
Disclaimer: I haven't actually followed the above steps; instead, I
merely wrote them off the top of my head. Therefore there may be the
usual subtle gotchas. But I expect them to work. Radovan or I can
probably help you through any rough spots.
