Great, I'm glad it worked. For running on Gentoo, the main thing you should
look for is docbook-sgml-utils, which is what they call docbook-utils. It
includes all the stuff like db2html and jw which you need. And of course 
you'll need CVS to get the docs.

Sure, if you have non-Cygwin trouble feel free to email me too. If you've
never used DocBook here's a good introduction to the basics of how and why:


The whole DocBook DTD reference manual (DocBook: The Definitive Guide) is
online, so you can just Google for, say "funcsynopsis" and get descriptions
and parents/children. Of course, you probably won't need any of that since
you can look at examples in the other parts of the Cygwin documentation.
