As with the DocBook V3.0 you must have a catalog and the

Jade's saying that it couldn't find a rule to make "-//OASIS//DTD
DocBook V3.1//EN" into the correct DTD file. Your installation of
DocBook 3.1 is probably missing.

That's because of the conversion proccess or because of the DTD

I'd rather ask you to compare the LinuxDoc commands with the DocBook
ones and write directly into DocBook. Only this way you'll use it's

There are some tools (such as Emacs + PSGML) that can easy this
proccess. But, again, it's a choice of yours to use LyX. At least it's
header seemed very good :-) I hope it's output is good too. But you'll
be limited to LyX capacity and won't use DocBook's full power.
