What Linux distro are you running? If it has a package called
"xmlto", try installing that. Then you can do this:

  xmlto pdf foo.xml

If that doesn't work, try installing the "fop" package (if there
is one), and then doing this:

  xmlto fo foo.xml
  fop foo.fo foo.pdf

And if that doesn't work, you might try installing "sgml2x" and
then run the following command:

  docbook-2-pdf foo.xml
