Many chapters need a thorough look-through. Besides being out of
date some chapters have ambiguous or unclear parts. For example,
the networking chapter explains how to set up an interface, and
mentions "ne0" is a sample after explaining the configuration
steps. The uncautious user might already have created /etc/ifconfig.ne0,
etc. In this particular example parts that explain e.g. interface
naming should be moved above a real-life example. Some parts say
the user has to execute a command, but does not explain what the
command does or what the output means, etc. Besides that there
are still some spelling mistakes (eg "50 ping SCSO port").

Thanks for merging them.

Besides looking at 2boot, I'd like to have a look at this one.

With kind regards,

BTW. What is the best way to submit diffs for documentation on
the website? netbsd-docs, www@ or send-pr. I might have some
additions for the "Running VMWare on NetBSD" page...
