Try to check the webpages for Debian/Hurd on http://ww.debian.org/ and
look under 'ports'. There you'll find a page with some links and docs on
how to get started.

Basically you need a small partition, a tarball of the rootsystem(to put
in the partition) and the kernel and then you'll need to install GRUB so
you can boot it.

Install GRUB and check the webpage. It is still very much in development
but try it out, we always needs more people trying it out and making more
packages compile. Return back here and join the happy gang. :)
