Don't know how to do it.

I think, as a newbie, it's better to keep usual DocBook tools

As I'm far to be a pro. I'm not sure to understand this.
Here's the way I proceed :

I have the following csma.sgml file :

<imagedata fileref="images/csma.jpg" format="jpg">
<imagedata fileref="images/csma.eps" format="eps">
<imagedata fileref="{DOC_PATH}images/csma.gif" format="gif">
<para>Méthode d'accès</para>

which is referred in ethernet.sgml

<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V3.1//EN" [
<!ENTITY csma    	SYSTEM "csma.sgml">

<article lang="fr">

     <title>Technologie Ethernet</title>
         	<revnumber>0.1</revnumber><date>21 Février 2000</date>
                <revremark>lists.oasis-open.org post</revremark>
<sect1><title>Méthode d'accès</title>

When I run db2html the gif file is used
When I run db2ps the eps file is used
When I run db2pdf the jpg file is used but not resized.
I had to rescale it "manually" from Gimp to fit in page.

Is there a better way to proceed ?
Is PNG file format only supported by DocBook v4.0beta2 ?
