You're not alone David.  I don't think anyone had an easy time figuring
out the Docbook stuff.  (sgmltools 2.02 doesn't compile on any machine
I've ever tried...and when I started trying to figure out DocBook that
was what seemed to be the recommended path...thankfully, I don't think
anyone is suggesting that terror anymore.)

I probably never would have gotten a working DocBook evironment were it
not for an upgrade to RH 6.2.
