Is there a debian package for GNU Mach 2, or is there some other reason for
not running it?

This works, thanks! Theproblem I have is that when I login, I get a "login:
chown: /dev/com0: Operation not permitted" message. I also got a "login: Timed
out after 5 minutes.", (I were writing on the console at the time).
By the way: I used Michael Bancks new installation method, and it worked
without any major problems when I figured out the harddisk naming scheme.
