Ok! So now I appoint you as my quality control manager - but if it is not 
right you must supply the patches! :)

I have just committed updates to the chapter on Network Browsing. These should 
appear in the published documentation on all major mirror sites within 24 

I'd appreciate fixes, updates, panic attacks, flogging, and public humiliation

modifications were perfect and will immediately withdraw rights to all future 
complaining about the HOWTO. (hehehehe!!) :)
