Hi Samuel.

I ran the above 'dd' command. The image actually becomes bigger, 'ls -lh' on
the GNU/Linux "host" system says debian-hurd-03102010-qemu.img has 2.0 Gb.,
but running the qemu machine, executing Debian GNU/Hurd like "guest" system,
'df -Th /' still says the "disk" has a size of 1.5 Gb. It's unable to see
the added space.

And about how to get an usable Swap memory, what do you suggest?.

Thanks, very much.
