11.1 About This Document

This document is written in SGML, using the ``DebianDoc'' DTD. Output formats are generated by programs from the debiandoc-sgml package.

In order to increase the maintainability of this document, we use a number of SGML features, such as entities and marked sections. These play a role akin to variables and conditionals in programming languages. The SGML source to this document contains information for each different architecture -- marked sections are used to isolate certain bits of text as architecture-specific.

If you have problems or suggestions regarding this document, you should probably submit them as a bug report against the package boot-floppies.

It would be nice if you could check the open bugs against boot-floppies to see whether your problem has already been reported. If so, you can supply addition corroboration or helpful information to XXXX@bugs.debian.org, where XXXX is the number for the already-reported bug.
