	Lately, I've been wondering how hard it would be to create a
bootable Hurd CD (a la Knoppix) that people could try without having to
install to their harddrive.  Are there any known problems with
grub/gnumach/hurd which would prevent this?  The biggest problems I can
see would be the lack of DHCP to get the network up without too much
trouble, and trying to autodetect the video card for X.

Comments, questions, suggestions?
