[RFC] [patch] handbook/network/chapter.sgml

This patch is the result of this page throwing me for a loop:
If you look at Section 2.11.1 it appears that syslogd has:
syslogd_flags="-a logclient.example.com -vv"
This obviously looks like two dash v's, however if you look at this online,
it looks like a "w"
If you use this flag, it isn't an option, and syslog fails to start. Here is
a patch that separates this throughout this document into:
"-v -v"
