If at all possible, you'll probably have a much better time installing ubuntu 12.04 and using apt-get to install ROS groovy as described here.

I haven't played with a beaglebone, but these questions may help, and they suggest that hydro on 13.04 is unnecessary.

I have Ubuntu 13.04 and I have installed ROS as normally installing from For the step of setup your sources.list, I chose Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal) :

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb quantal main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'

You can use the hydro beta in 13.04. Follow the groovy installation instructions for 12.04 but substitute appropriately for 13.04 and hydro.
