Wiki Review for Mepis 8.5 Manual

Please review these links that are included in MEPIS 8.5 Manual. Please make sure the information is up-to-date, accurate, and is formatted properly. Once you finish an article, please mark the link with "good" or "fixed", "needs more info", "needs update" or any other informative tag that you might feel you need to add.

NOTE: please be sure to check the User's Manual 8.5, because some sections have been rewritten there and not yet brought back. You can pretty much copy and paste, with minor formatting correction, since the Wiki can handle basic HTML.

The primary list of articles is alphabetical, except GRUB's several articles are grouped together for convenience of the reviewers.

The second section is basic housekeeping: are current articles entered in appropriate Categories so a person can find them?

To enter your username and date, just insert 4 tildes like this: ~~~~ I'm going to do that right now, so you can see how it comes out. Thanks, SilverBear 15:53, 25 March 2010 (EDT)
