Hello folks.

There are two small error in the documentation which is part of the
Cygwin 1.0 package:

- Pages 60 and 63 do contain examples of mount tables. The entries for
  tape devices have wrong native device names. They must not have
  trailing colons. So


  is incorrect while


  is correct.

- At the end of page 57 are examples of /etc/passwd and /etc/group
  files. The output is malformed due to formatting problems. Of course
  each entry in both files should be on a single line without trailing
  backslash as they are on U*X systems.

Hope, this helps,
