Description of problem:
On the page, I quote:

"Be very careful when you are editing the inittab file as typos can cause your
system to become unbootable without a using a boot diskette or going into rescue

It _should_ say 'become unbootable without using a boot diskette'.  There is an
incorrectly additional "a" before the word "using".

Thanks for catching that. It's ironic that there is a typo in a passage talking
about typos. I should probably avoid editing my own /etc/inittab ;-)

I have radically changed this chapter for the upcoming release and fixed this
particular issue. I will, however, issue an errata on the website soon and upon
doing so, close this bug.

Thank you so much for your help!

This issue is corrected in the latest release and I have updated the HTML on the
Web site.

Thanks again for your feedback!
