I am successfully running the Hurd on a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop. Some people may
encounter hardware problems if they are sharing an IRQ or something, but for me the
Hurd boots up fine on my laptop. You need to provide us with the complete error
message or with more information on what it is doing and also maybe 'cat
/proc/interrupts' from GNU/Linux too.

Also, there's no pcmcia support so unless you have a NIC installed on the PCI bus or
whatever you won't be able to do networking with it.

And if cynics ridicule freedom, ridicule community...if ``hard nosed 
realists'' say that profit is the only ideal...just ignore them, and use 
copyleft all the same.
