Fix grammar in a sentence

### Setup

If you're a NetBSD developer, you can:

* [[commit to `wikisrc`|cvs]] (no web browser needed!)
* [[edit in your browser|web]] (with easy previewing! just set a [[kerberos/password]] first)

Either or both. Whichever's more convenient when the urge strikes you.

If you're not a NetBSD developer, you can add a comment to any page.
We intend to develop some custom features for ikiwiki that'll provide
more meaningful ways for you to participate. Until then, please
bear with us and comment freely.

### Wikitext

Text is [[formatted|ikiwiki/formatting]] in [[ikiwiki/Markdown]],
with [[ikiwiki/WikiLink]] and [[ikiwiki/directive]] extensions.
When editing in a browser, help is always available via a link below
the textarea. Various [[templates]] are available as well.

To see what Markdown does with your input, there is
[Dingus]( (it's an external
site) which
also has a nice cheat-sheet for the Markdown-syntax.

Feel free to use the [[wiki/graphic_chart]] as an example
for your page. You are not forced to follow its layout, but
it can help you to quickly design pages so that they look better integrated
with the rest of the wiki.

To practice, you can play in the [[SandBox]].

### Locally previewing NetBSD wiki with template

To set up ikiwiki locally to preview changes without committing or
logging in via a browser please see the
[[Previewing NetBSD Wiki with template|wiki/previewing_with_template]]

### Your first page

If you're a developer, create a [[users]] page for yourself. It's
your personal wiki space, and also lets you sign your discussion
posts like so. --[[schmonz]]

### What next

Write whatever you like, wherever you like. It's a wiki! Have fun. :-)
