It sounds as if you are trying to get part or all of the DocBook
toolchain running under Windows.  While I won't say this is futile, it
will definitely exercise the edges of your sanity.

Instead, have you considered connecting from your Windows OS via PuTTY
( to a Fedora Core
server with the Authoring and Publishing package group installed (i.e.,
docbook-*, tetex, xmlto, etc.)?  You can edit using 'emacs -nw', build
on the FC server, and publish the pages with Apache to view with your
browser under Windows.

Even the Fedora Core 2 install I have running on a P-200 MMX with 64 MB
RAM will build our documents in reasonable time. :)
