What a generous way of saying I'm spending way too much time on this

huge number of mistakes when setting up my system, so I have a lot of 
experience mapping symptoms to problems.  :)

Actually, no, I hadn't.  I had sent a couple of very minor corrections 
and one section on mtd, but figured I had a lot more to learn before I 
could really contribute.

Definitely a plus.
