A month or so ago I wrestled getting sgmltools-lite working on my
laptop running SuSE V6.4 by doing installing dozen or so RPMs.  That
machine has since died and I'm about to go through the process with my
new SuSE V7.0 desktop system.

SuSE does include various docbook tools (db2XXX) but it won't properly 
process my DocBook V3.1 document.  sgmltools-lite won't install until
a number of dependencies are addressed.

It would be nice to have a set of RPMs and tar.gz files that are known
to work on all the major linux distributions.
