The INSTALL script is something I personally added to tthe distro just as a convenience for people using XML catalogs but who aren't installing using their OS distro's package management system. You're not required to run it. I won't be creating a corresponding batch script for Windows because I know nothing about creating Windows batch scripts. Anyway, the preferred way to install the DocBook XSL stylesheets is through your OS distro's package management system, because they are packaged for every major OS distro. That includes the Cygwin environment for Windows. One of the developers from the DocBook project, Marcel Telka, maintains that package. So if you are running Windows, install Cygwin, then install the Cygwin docbook-xsl package. If you do that, you won't need to run the INSTALL script. Marcel's package includes a postinstll script that automatically runs and does the same thing for you.
