Unfortunately the code blocks seem to break the ordered list. According to [^] replacing the linebreaks with a space before '<code>' should fix this. And it would be also good to add the warning regarding identifying the right disk device since many OS X users aren't that familiar with CLI stuff.

The warning was already there, placed under installation because you have to take care, regardless which OS you are using.

I've fixed the code blocks.

Sorry, me again :-\ I had a little typo in. When utilizing dd the block size has to be specified with lowercase letters on OS X. So it should read "bs=1m" instead...

BTW: Kudos! Great work so far! Everything worked flawlessly up until now. One potential minor issue for inexperienced users though: While expanding the root fs with bananian-config it might be better read 'Expanding root file system... (ignore the warnings and reboot immediately)" instead of "Expanding root file system... (restart required)"

fixed the typo and changed the text in bananian-config (for our next version)
