Currently, TheHurd is not in a usable state yet, but you can still install it,

boot (["LILO"] doesn't support ["Mach"]), which is a good thing anyway. Prepare
a <1Gib Linux partition, and follow the instructions.

What the name "Hurd" means

According to Thomas Bushnell, BSG, the primary architect of the Hurd, "Hurd' stands for 'Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons'. And, then, 'Hird' stands for 'Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth'. We have here, to my knowledge, the first software to be named by a pair of mutually recursive acronyms." (from the ["GNU"] HURD webpage)
