Cool, thanks. I've run into some trouble with actually getting a
working installation onto a physical machine, though; it mounts the
ext2 file system read-only, and when I try to run:

# settrans -ag / /hurd/ext2fs /dev/hd0s5

It gives me the error "device too small for superblock (0 bytes)". I
can mount the same file system without any problems in GNU/Linux and

I thought it might be caused by trying to run Hurd on a logical
partition, but rearranging my partition table to put it on a primary
partition gives the same result.

Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this?

Yeah, I agree. I just wasn't aware that there was already a howto for
this. I'd definitely be up for working on integrating DDE once I get my
GNU/Hurd system up and running. :-)
