After a few days I got an installed GNU system in my Bochs :)

the reason for the delay is that it's crashed me a big bunch of times,
and for some weird reason e2fsck refused to work so i had to reboot into
GNU/Linux to fsck.

The following problems have got into the way:

(Bochs has been given 64MB for RAM and 128MB for swap)

ppa support in mach crashes bochs by reading 0x3c0 (i'm looking into this)

can't handle more than 64 translators in /dev (crashing on 65th). note that
most of /dev/{p,t}ty{p,q}* devices aren't there (btw, they aren't critical
are they?)

random crashes setting up pakages, specialy ext2fsprogs and inetutils
random crashes setting up /dev/console
native-install: `fsysopts / | perl -ne 'm!^/hurd/(.*?)\.static.*?([^\s]+)\s*?$!; print $2;'` returns device:hdXsY which MAKEDEV doesn't understand

Multi-user (with swap):
unpacking gnumach or hurd crashes (likely any big package would crash it)
