Try the Boostbook documentation for setting up the toolchain. Its quite
comprehensive. (Thanks Doug Gregor). I put Quickbook.exe in my path ( actually
in Boosts <dist/bin/> directory, from wherever bjam puts it when it does the
boost build (or just run Bjam in the Quickbook source directory). Finally you
need a Jamfile.v2 in the same directory as the timer.qbk or whatever its called.
Look at similar jamfiles for Quickbook source docs for other libarries. I
basically copied mine over and substituted the names from them. Invoke Bjam in
that directory and you should be 'cooking with gas' as they say.

Anyway its definitely worth persevering with. The whole Quickbook, Boostbook ,
DocBook thing is very powerful.
