    Is it a program, set of documents or what? Is it self-contained
    anywhere so I can download that at once?

    Coul you please point me to a specification of an object called
    "DocBook stylesheets"?

    How do I determine what distribution I have? I have compiled my whole system

    Asking again: how do I install "DocBook stylesheets"?

    Do you say that the place where DocBook stylesheet sources can be downloaded
    depends on distribution I have? I have been looking at their sourceforge
    project page but there is nothing like "download DocBook stylesheets".
    There are DocBook-dsssl and a ton of other cryptic packages but none of them
    is stylesheets.

    If there doesn't exist any distribution-idependent installation process
    for "DocBook stylesheets", then "DocBook stylesheets" is not portable,
    and transitively, "Linux Kernel" is not portable. Could you please
    recommend me some other open-source free operating system where I don't
    need to have a "distribution" to be even able to read it's enclosed
    documentation? I have been using Linux Kernel for 7 years but can't anymore
    because I am unable to read it's manual.
