How do I make a correction to a Wikipedia entry?

My company's chairman has discovered some errors on the Wikipedia entry describing our company. How would we go about editing the entry?
Some of the errors are blatantly incorrect pieces of information. Others are more open to interpretation, and are definitely shaded in nuance and can go either way.
Please understand that we're not looking to clean this up for good PR, but to do the honest thing and put real fact in place of innuendo.
So how does one go about doing this? Is there a process of addressing grievances? Or do we just go in, click "edit this page", and just start writing?
Links to helpful HOWTO's and READMEs would more than appreciated. Also, comments are welcome, too. Is it bad form for a company to edit its own wikipedia entry? Again, we're not interested in a PR whitewash, merely a correction of clearly erroneous or outdated information. No flames, please.
