Right, for the web publication we'd additionally installed both the
man pages converted to html, and previously the README.sgml documents
from all the drivers converted to html - I figured for this round I'd
just copy in the README files as plain text.

The links will indeed be broken for distros that install into their
packages, but they already were.
