- Copy `hurd` into `/etc/xen`, edit it for fixing access to your hurd / and swap
- Run `xm create -c hurd`, gnumach should get started.
-- If `xm` complains about networking (vif could not be connected), it's Xen fault, see Xen documentation for how to configure the network. The simplest way is network-bridge with fixed IPs. You can also just disable networking by commenting the vif line in the config.

+- If `xm` complains `Error: (2, 'Invalid kernel', 'xc_dom_compat_check: guest type xen-3.0-x86_32 not supported by xen kernel, sorry\n')`, you most probably have a PAE-enabled hypervisor, and you just need to install and boot a non-PAE hypervisor.
If you want to generate these images, first get the `gnumach-1-branch-Xen-branch` branch from gnumach CVS.
Then look for "Ugly" in `kern/bootstrap.c`, how to generate `hurd-modules` is explained there, and you'll have to fix `EXT2FS_SIZE` and `LD_SO_SIZE` by hand.
