Default Question on Taxi Lights

The A-10C DCS flight manual (p.435) says for taxiing the externals lights need to be set via the Lightning Panel as follows:

"Set exterior lights from Lighting Panel:
o Taxi: Strobe is OFF and Nav Lights set to Dim Flash"

However, on the Lighting Panel, we have "Position", "Formation" and "Anti-Collision". How should these knobs been set to meet what is indicated in the flight manual?

The anti- collision are the strobe lights. The position lights can be set to flashing or steady. The formation lights are used for night flights when flying in formation.

During day time, on ground you should to have set nav flash and strobes off.
Pre-takeoff checks, once onto runway nav steady and strobes on.
