Status in Ubuntu Documentation: Fix Released

Bug description:
here are some minor corrections to user guide (version posted on http://doc.ubuntu.com/pdf/ on March 11):

 - copyright dates should be 2004-2006 (not 2005)
 - on pg. 2 (Chapter 1, section "The Difference" replace Mandrake->Mandriva
- in section "Version and Release numbers": 
"This version (Dapper Drake), was released in April 2006..."  - remove comma

- In "Permissions" section: 
files can be edited or deleted
directories can be deleted"

This is simply not true. write permission for directories means ability to add/delete/rename files and subdirectories in this directory, not "delete the directory"

- chapter 4, section "wireless cards": by far the most common problem with wireless cards is that many cards have no linux drivers and can only be used with ndiswrapper. So please include a link to ndiswrapper wiki page, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper
(there is a link to it deeply inside troubleshooting guide, but it is not easy to find)
