 driver.conf \- driver configuration files
 Driver configuration files provide values for device properties. The values
 override values provided by the devices themselves. Most modern devices provide
 enough property values to make a driver configuration file unnecessary.
 The system associates a driver with its configuration file by name. For
 example, a driver in \fB/usr/kernel/drv\fR called \fBwombat\fR has the driver
 configuration file \fBwombat.conf\fR, also stored in \fB/usr/kernel/drv\fR,
-associated with it. On systems capable of support 64-bit drivers, the driver
+associated with it. On systems that support 64-bit drivers, the driver
 configuration file should be placed in the directory in which the 32-bit driver
 is (or would be) located, even if only a 64-bit version is provided. For
 example, a 64-bit driver stored in \fB/usr/kernel/drv/sparcv9\fR stores its
 driver configuration file in \fB/usr/kernel/drv\fR.

 \fIWriting Device Drivers\fR
 To avoid namespace collisions between multiple driver vendors, it is strongly
 recommended that the \fIname\fR property of the driver should begin with a
 vendor-unique string. A reasonably compact and unique choice is the vendor
 over-the-counter stock symbol.
