Re: Unable to boot GNU/Hurd

Yep, I also forget to show my parted output:

(parted) print

Disk /dev/hda: 200GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B

Physicaly 3rd partition is placed before 2nd.

Thanks, I thought its zero-based too.

No, I'd created new partition:
$ sudo mke2fs -b 4096 -o hurd /dev/hda3
mounted it, downloaded tarball and untared it:
$ cd /mnt/tmp/
$ sudo tar --same-owner -xvzpf ~/src/debian-gnu-hurd-2006-11-26.tar.gz
updated grub' menu.lst and that's all.

Version of GNUMach is 1.3.99.

I guess it's a problem with hardware... What kind of hardware is
potentialy unsupported by Hurd?
There is following hardware in my PC:
1) AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+ on NFORCE3-250
2) Matrox G550 video-card
3) old tv-tuner (AverMedia on bt878)

Also there is no floppy drive here.
