We don't have RTF format, but we do have an HTML "one-chunk" version,
meaning that the whole document appears as a single HTML file.  You can
load that in your Web browser of choice and then print it.  Assuming you
have Fedora installed somewhere, you can do the following:

1. Get the docs from CVS by following the instructions here:
   http://fedora.redhat.com/projects/docs/  (see "CVS Access")

2. For each doc you want to build, just "cd" to that directory and issue
the following command:
   make html-nochunks

3. When you're finished you'll see a subdirectory to which you can point
your Web browser, and then print the resulting document.

This is a stopgap measure only, and we're sorry this requires a bit too
much work on your part.  I'm filing a bug against our web site, so that
we can add this format to our web site and thus require less work from
people who simply want to read or print these docs.  The bug is located
