Help required - HURD booting


I have 2 Hard disks in my box and the GNU-HURD is installed in 2nd disk (which is set as IDE slave or secondary). I installed the GRUB 0.92 in the flobby and when I tried to boot, the screen JUST hang and there are no error message displayed.

Command that I gave on the grub boot prompt are:
grub> find /boot/gnumach.gz

grub> kernel (hd1,4)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd1s3 -s
[Multiboot-elf, ...]

grub> module (hd1,4)/hurd/ext2fs.static --multiboot-command-line=${kernel-command-line} --host-priv-port=${host-port} --device-master-port=${device-port} --exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root} $(task-create) $(task-resume)
[Multiboot-module  0x1c4000, 0x2cfe6a bytes]
grub> module (hd1,4)/lib/ld.so.1 /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)
[Multiboot-module  0x494000, 0x27afe bytes]

grub> boot

The system hang with no error message and I just need to manually reboot my box.

How should I proceed after this?

Note: I already have Windows and Linux installed in my box. When I checked from my linux box, the HURD is installed in the partition hdb5.

Thanks & Regards,
