Must have missed it...

Installation...  when I tried jade, it complained about not having the 
docbook umm... element list thing (what's that called?).  Probably due to 
the fact that its installation script failed.

Upon installation of the RPMs, it's nothing much, but I also get a huge 
set of errors about the user and group not found; using root.

That's what I'm trying to get -- original sources -- where are they?

That would be nice.  Actually, RPM -would- be nice too if they'd install 
smoothly.  Thanks for the help!
