Code Listing 8:
Selecting necessary file systems
[*] /dev file system support (EXPERIMENTAL)
[ ] /dev/pts file system for Unix98 PTYs"

There are something different text in real life which can confuse beginners.

"Network device support --->
  <*> PPP (point-to-point protocol) support
  <*>   PPP support for async serial ports
  <*>   PPP support for sync tty ports"

It is not very clear where these settings are located and beginner can
finish wondering arround.

I'll improve that to save potential confusion.

Hopefully, code listings that match output of make menuconfig for both 2.4 and 2.6 should make options easier to find. That allowed me to remove some <note> elements as well.

Thanks for reporting.
