problems mounting my hurd partition

     I have an extra system sitting around I figured I'd install the hurd on.
     problem is that after doing a: 
        mke2fs -O sparse_super -o hurd /dev/hda8
        (which is a 975mb partition)

     I try to mount it with:

         mount /dev/hda8 /mnt/hurd

     And I get the following message:

EXT2-fs: 03:08: couldn't mount RDWR because of unsupported optional features.
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda8
       or too many mounted file systems

     There is no hurd filesystem support in the kernel, and I remember
     hearing it's just a slightly modified ext2 partition, right? so
     it should be supported along with ext2? so what am I doing wrong

     running: Debain GNU/Linux (potato) kernel 2.2.18 pre21

     Thanks, any help appreciated.
