GNU/Hurd is the name of the GNU operating system when TheHurd is used as the kernel.

The Hurd is a MultiServer MicroKernel POSIX-emulating operating system kernel, based on the Mach microkernel, although there has been talk about porting it to the L4 microkernel too.

Currently, TheHurd is not in a production-ready state yet, but you can still install it, if you just work a bit and already got linux working. You have to use Grub to boot (LILO doesn't support "Mach"), which is a good thing anyway.

You can follow also the instructions about Hurd on QEMU: http://darnassus.sceen.net/~hurd-web/hurd/running/qemu/

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)
