Start with the LDP Author Guide:


In our "author's resources" area


there are pointers to various helpful documents/books

   DocBook: The Definitive Guide, by Norman Walsh and Leonard Muellner

   Using DocBook HOWTO, by Jorge Godoy

and there also pointers to downloadable template files for
HOWTOs (in DocBook and Linuxdoc SGML).

(I'll add your info to the "docs in progress" page).

Let me know if you have any questions.
