Sorry for being sloppy here: evtl. = eventual.. It's not a
translator but an abbreviation. Sorry for the confusion ;-).

Hmmm... there is no /hurd/storeio hd1 entry here either.
Since you created /dev/hd1 with MAKEDEV (did you, right?)
starting the translator with settrans should have touched
/dev/hd1 and automatically started '/hurd/storeio hd1'.
Even if the /hurd/isofs translator dies after that, the
/hurd/storeio on hd1 should be still running anyway.
Did you try a simple 'ls -l /dev/hd1'?
With -l, ls would call stat() on that node and should
start the translator anyway. If there is no hd1 or if
/hurd/storeio didn't start after this, I'd suspect that
/dev/hd1 was not setup properly. Just redo:
# ./MAKEDEV hd1
and try again.
