This can be done by following a format similar to
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Beats but using a [[Table of
Contents]] at the start instead of the hand-generated list of links to
the actual sub-pages.

Breaking this up could make for easier and more intuitive deep linking:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ/GettingStarted#Is-my-hardware-compatible-with-Fedora

Right now a link to that same question looks like this:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ#head-640c24d1609de5de1e7955fc46743cc017e77d75

This format sucks for Google, because it changes all the time.

You could simulate that with the anchors, but it would look more like
this:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ#GettingStarted--Is-my-hardware-compatible-with-Fedora
