I am trying to install Hurd with crosshurd on Debian Etch on /dev/sda4.

Steps followed:

1. Created a partition using fdisk (/dev/sda4). Set partition type as ext2 (83).
2. Create filesystem using mke2fs:

        sudo mke2fs -vm0 /dev/sda4

3. Mounted:

        sudo mount /dev/sda4 /mnt

4. Ran /usr/sbin/crosshurd.

        - Target directory /mnt.
        - Select 'gnu' as system to install.
        - Default architecture value 'i486'.
        - Say 'yes' to create symlink for '/usr' to '.'

5. Setup grub as follows:

title           Debian GNU Hurd
kernel          (hd0,3)/boot/gnumach.gz root=device:hd0s4 -s
module          (hd0,3)/hurd/ext2fs.static
--host-priv-port=${host-port} --device-master-port=${device-port}
--exec-server-task=${exec-task} -T typed ${root}
module          (hd0,3)/lib/ld.so.1 /hurd/exec $(exec-task=task-create)

On reboot, it does some PCI init, detects CDROM drive etc. noticed one
"SCSI initialized failed" message, and halts at:

start (hd0,3)/hurd/ext2fs.static: (hd0,3)/hurd/ext2fs.static
device:hd0s4: No such device or address

I tried using, "root=/dev/hd0s4" and it halted at:

start (hd0,3)/hurd/ext2fs.static: (hd0,3)/hurd/ext2fs.static
root=/dev/hd0s4: Gratuitous error

Is this because of no SATA support for gnumach or am I missing something?
