Book updates

Hi !

I have updated the book. I made this patch directly from the
doc/book/book folder. I only checkout that folder as I do not have the
required C coding skills, so I checkout what I can work on :)

Anyway, you'll see I updated the users@subversion.tigris.org email to
dev@subversion.tigris.org. I was not so sure about that change. I put
it in anyway, at least for the proper markup to be used.

Finally, I documented the fact that on Windows platforms, you *can* use a
drive specification in your file URL. Just use the appropriate syntax.
See the patch below.

Thanks !
Francois Beausoleil
