Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

Windows line 86:

"You may have one or several networking devices."

It is posible to have zero networking devices, so i think it would be better to change it to: "You may have several networking devices."

Well that still wouldn't cover the zero case. I think "You may have more then one networking devices" would work even better.

How about "You may have one or more networking devices, although it is not necessary to have any at all."?

This should be the patch, I think.

The patch doesn't quite work on the latest maverick branch, because the first change in it, the change to serverguide/C/lamp-applications.xml, has already been applied. I've applied the second change manually. Thanks for the work.
