Documentation: e100: Fix docs build error
Recent patch updated e100 docs to rst format. Docs build (`make htmldocs`) is currently failing due to this file with error: (SEVERE/4) Unexpected section title. This is because a section of the file is indented 2 spaces. Build error can be cleared by aligning the text with column 0. While we are changing these lines we can make sure line length does not exceed 72, that newlines following headings are uniform, and that full stops are followed by two spaces. Align text with column 0, limit line length to 72, ensure two spaces follow all full stops, ensure uniform use of newlines after heading.

Additional Configurations
=========================
- Configuring the Driver on Different Distributions
- -------------------------------------------------
-
- Configuring a network driver to load properly when the system is started is
- distribution dependent. Typically, the configuration process involves adding
- an alias line to /etc/modprobe.d/*.conf as well as editing other system
- startup scripts and/or configuration files. Many popular Linux
- distributions ship with tools to make these changes for you. To learn the
- proper way to configure a network device for your system, refer to your
- distribution documentation. If during this process you are asked for the
- driver or module name, the name for the Linux Base Driver for the Intel
- PRO/100 Family of Adapters is e100.
-
- As an example, if you install the e100 driver for two PRO/100 adapters
- (eth0 and eth1), add the following to a configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d/

- Viewing Link Messages

- In order to see link messages and other Intel driver information on your
- console, you must set the dmesg level up to six. This can be done by
- entering the following on the command line before loading the e100 driver::

+Multiple Interfaces on Same Ethernet Broadcast Network

- Due to the default ARP behavior on Linux, it is not possible to have
- one system on two IP networks in the same Ethernet broadcast domain
- (non-partitioned switch) behave as expected. All Ethernet interfaces
- will respond to IP traffic for any IP address assigned to the system.
- This results in unbalanced receive traffic.
