Do you happen to know of any Internet news portal that adds a note "hey
Philip, this article is older than two days, it might not be accurate
Anyway, perhaps you should read the articles more carefully:
"Disclaimer : The original version of this article was first published
on IBM developerWorks, and is property of Westtech Information Services.
This document is an updated version of the original article, and
contains various improvements made by the Gentoo Linux Documentation team.
This document is not actively maintained." 
"01 Dec 2000 Updated 03 Jul 2008" 
*Nothing* needs changing.
Better stick to the more important things.
