Have you tried going from DocBook SGML->HTML? even on my new laptop
(Piii 750/128MB) it takes a while (like more then 5min), perhaps on my
main server it would be a little faster, but that's just stupid, this
idea would not work. (at least, it would not be refined as something
like the LFS Book)

This will be done though (i know Myself and Bryan have talked about it
alot, especially after we found out about VA BOSS) with ALFS Profiles,
which would not need even the closest amount of processing power.

Don't let that stop you though, if you think you can do something like
that, by all means, go right ahead, but i can speak for Gerard, in that
he doesn't have the extra time to add to a project like that (apart from
ideas/mailing lists, etc), same goes for me :)
