Re: GRUB options for HURD installation

i followed this guide:  http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-install

and in section "5 - booting GNU/Hurd" i see this:

Assuming that the first drive (i.e. `(hd0)') is the master on the
secondary controller, we would have:

  grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd2s1 -s
   [Multiboot-elf, ...]

read this:  "Assuming that the first drive (i.e. `(hd0)') is the
master on the secondary controller"

what does that mean, if anything ?

i have simply an ATA attached and this is the only disk i have on my
system and i am installing it on 4th partition of my hard-disk {
(hd0,3)  for GRUB }

[root@arch gnu]# fdisk -l

this from my Arch GNU/Linux distro. nevermind the "sda". actually
"Arch" uses sda for both ATA and Serial-ATA hard-disks and i have an
ATA, (not Serial-ATA).

so i do not understand which one i should use:

this:       grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd1s3 -s

or this:  grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd1s4 -s

or this:  grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s3 -s

or this:  grub> kernel (hd0,0)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s4 -s

any idea ??

ok, i found it:   "hd0s4"
