    As far as I know they are Windows specific, also because the application to create the chm files is a Windows application. The past few years it is customary to create the chm files straight from the html documentation, so you may want to get in touch with the creator and ask him for the webpages. Most of the time these are more up to date as well.

    Hope this helps

    Hi, Mandrake 10.1 has a programme called xchm. If you have setup your repositories correctly all you need to do is as root
    Code:
    urpmi xchm
    & you should be good to go..

    HTH

    Edit: Ooops beaten to it!!
