Found typo: '… a X terminal…' / Should be: '… an X terminal…'

But did it really need six revisions of your feedback line to tell me this :-) That is what the [Preview] button is for…

So sorry about that. When it comes to editing: can't help meself, mate :)

Spotted a formatting typo. Look under Modifying lilo.conf

The first code block in the section says:

label = linux read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking

It should be two lines:

label = linux
read-only     # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking

Perhaps a rogue Return key didn't show up? It was probably taking some unwarranted holiday somewhere or other. It might even be slacking somewhere else on this site for all we know. Hey, in the ChangeLog recently Pat lost a '['. “It had fallen off my desk and ended up under a table”. That's always a pain.

Nice guide Eric. Thanks for the rest of your good work too. I appreciate you highlighting the point Linus made (the infamous /usr/src 'zombie' instructions), and the fact that it's a 'non-issue' with Slackware.

However I still think Linus has a point. If nothing else, juggling chainsaws when you're tired, and you've done it a million times before, could be hazardous to your health ;-)
