I did not.. however what i will try later tonight is to edit mtab and let the system boot without /home and see if it completes boot.
some updates. I did the following (in the fresh install).

0) fsck'd /
1) remounted / read-write, edited /etc/fstab and commented out the line for my /home partition
2) dpkg-reconfigure hurd, as Samuel already suggested
3) rebooted

voilĂ ! The hurd completes booting perfectly! I get to a loing prompt and log-in as root. I can even configure my ethernet card and ping around :)

I verify, I do have now /proc populated, but als /var/run is full of stuff. Thus probably it gets configured later in the boot process which aborted too early with fsck.

Thus I tried now to fsck /dev/hd0s2, which would be my /home partition. I get told that it is already mounted! But "mount" says it is not (and how should it, it is not in my fstab anymore)

Thus I continue asking for help to fix this mess with partitions! what could be wrong? I would really like to have my separate /home partition!
