Using previous releases, I got to install successfully in

- ThinkPad T60, R60e
- ThinkPad R61i
- ThinkPad T410

Using DVD-1 image. 

T30 is so old. The Debian GNU/HURD installer needs at least 256 MB RAM.

Added to this, in the most modern machines I had to configure SATA ports in 
"compatibility" mode to simulate IDE devices (in the BIOS configuration). With 
this, the installer works without problems. 

In some weeks I will try again to install in these machines, using the new 
image and configuring Rumpdisk instead  enable compatibility mode.

I will report here the results
