You were right, they're already installed ( I thought i'd selected the docbook stuff at install), so why do I get 
# yum install xmlto
...
Nothing to do

This may seem silly, but I'm a bit believer in lessening the learning
curves steepness, so can you add the line

"Do 'yum search <file-name>' as root to see if you need to install any
of the files."

Well not quite, I still don't know what app to start and what to do with it...
Nor do I have any experience of using cvs, maybe you can recommend a
link and add it to that page as well?
