I put the self-referencing links on each page just so
you can see the inclusion better... our one at work doesn't
have those, but rather puts a self referencing link with appropriate
page anchor into each faq item header.

For example the Sun FAQ lines would be:

! [[#DriveSize]][[Unix/SunFAQ#DriveSize| How big of a drive can a Sun
box handle?]]

I'll go ahead and make that change as well...
