Dear Iain:

I've been googling more, found redhat bugzilla on the I/O error and
network entity:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=440295

Are you by chance running the Server version of Centos 5.2 with the
mis-matched versions of Dockbook mentioned in this bug report?

That would explain the trouble you see.  I don't get that same error
you see, so I can't say for sure if a system update does fix it.  But
it appears it might.  I think also you should consider installing the
gnome-doc-utils package I have, and check your xlst packages:

$ rpm -qa | grep xsl
libxslt-devel-1.1.17-2.el5_1.1
openoffice.org-xsltfilter-2.3.0-6.5.1.el5_2
docbook-style-xsl-1.69.1-5.1
libxslt-1.1.17-2.el5_1.1
