I come back to this.

I tried:
remove hard disk, but it in another laptop (since no USB... I had really
no other way to transfer the file...)
Update everything with apt-get upgrade.

Download cardmgr-gnuach, install.
Reboot and reboot works. I did not test id cardbus works, sicne this
laptop has integrated ethernet, even though apparently (did not test
thoroughly at that momemt though) a WiFi cardbus card caused boot issue.

Put HD back in old laptop.
Boot halts at:
Hurd server bootstrap: ext2fs[defice:hd0s1] exec

Tried rebooting, it is stuck twice,

Put it back in the other laptop, reboot & fsck. Uninstall cardmgr-gnumach

Put HD back in old laptop. Stuck again.

So I am not 99% sure that cardmgr-gnumach does not work, but I am quite
sure that after the update, GNUmach hancs on my Old Thinkpad 600 with a
PentiumIII processor.
