Some comments on that patch:

chapter04/aboutsbus.xml
-provide accurate time estimates.  The biggest package (Glibc) will
+provide accurate time estimates. The biggest package (Glibc) will

The only thing I see here is the removal of a space.  I may have been taught
incorrectly, but when typing, one uses two spaces after a full stop (period) and
one after any other punctuation mark.  It wouldn't matter in this case anyway,
as XML is non-printable character agnostic in the most part.

chapter04/aboutlfs.xml:
 
-<para>Having this variable set is beneficial in that commands such as
+<para>Having this variable set is beneficial so that commands such as

I don't see a problem with the original, and it actually sounds more correct
than your proposed correction.  I'll defer this one to Gerard though.

chapter05/binutils-pass1.xml:

-<para>Next, prepare the linker for the <quote>adjusting</quote> phase
+<para>Next, prepare the linker for the <quote>Adjusting</quote> phase

Not sure quite what to do with this one.  Maybe it should be an xref instead of
inside quotes, so it actually points at the correct section?

prologue/foreword.xml

-programs were configured by default. I tried a number of alternate
+programs were configured by default. I tried a number of alternative

I prefer your version to the original, but what about 'different' instead of
'alternative'?

-customized system. This <quote>perfect</quote> Linux system would then

Deferred to Gerard.

chapter07/introduction.xml

-<para>If using an alternate style of init scripts, skip this chapter
+<para>If using an alternative style of init scripts, skip this chapter

Thanks, I prefer your version too.  The fact that this change has been suggested
earlier suggests there might be some stylistic/grammatical issue I'm
overlooking.  Gerard?

chapter07/setclock.xml

-substracting an hour (or only add six in the first place) during the summer
+subtracting an hour (or only add six in the first place) during the summer

Thanks.

Index: chapter07/network.xml

-Prefixes longer than 24 bits are commonly used by DSL- and cable-based
+Prefixes longer than 24 bits are commonly used by DSL and cable-based

The original looks correct to me, the '-' links the 'based' suffix from
'cable-based' to DSL, meaning it should be read as 'DSL-based and cable-based'.

Thanks Anderson, I'll leave Gerard to comment on the suggestions you made,

Matt.
