repair of laminated flooring

I HAVE A LAMINATED WOOD LOOK FLOOR. THERE ARE FOUR OF FIVE SMALL CHIPS AT THE CORNERS OF A FEW OF THE PLANKS.
HOW CAN THESE BE REPAIRED, AND WHO WOULD HAVE THE SUPPLIES? thanks

here is a way to repar it, it works on wood paneling but im not sure if it would hold on a high traffic floor.
obtain some dry spackling or joint compound (dry as in not pre-mixed, powder form) available at wal-mart or home-depot or any hardware store
obtain some (im serious here) powdered instant regular(not decaf) cofee
a cup or two of water
in a bowl or bucket, mix the compound or spackle with water as directed on the packaging to obtain the proper consistency (like thick pudding or pie filling) and simply add small amounts of the instant cofee untill the mixture appears to match the color of the wood flooring.
then apply the colored mixture to the area needing repair as neccesary
