 What this little Hurd image can do
 ----------------------------------
 
+### About this text
+
+This is the README file accompanying a 
+[disk_image](http://draketo.de/dateien/hurd/bab-hurd-qemu-2008-10-29.img.tar.bz2) 
+for 
+[running_the_GNU/Hurd_via_qemu](http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/running/qemu.html). 
+To run the disk image, just use *'qemu disk_image.img'*. 
+
+You can find the custom *.bashrc* used to tell the user about it as well as this text itself 
+in the Mercurial repository [hurd_intro](http://bitbucket.org/ArneBab/hurd_intro).

+### Intro
+
 The Hurd has some unique capabilities, and we created this simple image 
 to enable you to easily try two of them: 
 
 
 To try out the simplest of translators, you can go the following simple steps: 
 
-$ cat hello
-$ setrans hello /hurd/hello
-$ cat hello
-"Hello World!"
-$ settrans -g hello
-$ cat hello
+	$ cat hello  
+	$ setrans hello /hurd/hello  
+	$ cat hello  
+	"Hello World!"  
+	$ settrans -g hello  
+	$ cat hello  
 
 What you do with these steps is first verifying that the file "hello" is empty. 
 
 
 We already setup a a transparent FTP translator for you at /ftp: 
 
-With it you can easily access public FTP via the file system, for example the one from the free university of Berlin: 
+With it you can easily access public FTP via the file system, for example the one from the GNU project: 
 
-$ ls /ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
+	$ ls /ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
 
 But you can also do this very easily yourself: 
 
-$ # Setup the translator on the node ftp:
-$ settrans -c ftp: /hurd/hostmux /hurd/ftpfs /
+	$ # Setup the translator on the node ftp:  
+	$ settrans -c ftp: /hurd/hostmux /hurd/ftpfs /
 
 and you can access FTP sites via the pseudo-directory ftp:, for example with 
 
-$ ls ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
+	$ ls ftp://ftp.gnu.org/
 
 What you do here is setting up the translator /hurd/hostmux on ftp: and passing it the translator /hurd/ftpfs to use for resolving accesses as well as / as additional path component.
