Changed the name of this article to present it as a FAQ instead of a maintenance procedure. I'm also going to move it off the maintenance article and onto the FAQ article.

I scanned down the page and found this small step-by-step how-to article to look at first. (I figured, how much damage can I do, right?) I made some nit-pickey edits to the verbage of the entry. One of my pet peeves is to tell somebody to push a button in Step One, then tell them in Step Two that they were supposed to continue holding the button while they did something else. Also, I edited a little clunky grammar that bothered me.

Is this the kind of thing you want us to do?

Yes, absolutely. One of the major tenets of wikidom is that people should take the initiative to fix things that they find lacking. If you think the verbage is lacking or unclear, and have an idea of how to fix it, do it!

Many hands make light work. If everyone contributes just a little bit, we might have something substantial to show for it.

Thanks for the improvement!
