I found two possible mistakes in doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/book.sgml.
(I am not sure if the first is really a mistake. It may come from my
poor ability in English.)
Here they are:
<para>A dialog will pop up requesting the number of
cylinders, heads and sectors. Type the numbers found from
the BIOS separates by forward slashes.
Is the wording of "separates" here gramatically correct?
This phrase can be easily understood even without the following example,
but I could not figure out what the subject of "separates", and got
a little bit confused when translating it.
<para>5000 heads, 250 sectors and 60 sectors would be entered as
5000 cylinders, 250 heads and 60 sectors?
