Depends on what you mean by preparing :)
I guess that highly depends on in which language the book is written. I
personally would probably use LaTeX. It's basically fast to write and
looks good. It's easy to convert to pdf, which is probably the best
end-format for an ebook.
`pdflatex` would then be the program of choice to convert to pdf for
screen use. The package 'listings' is quite good for code and LyX (a
Wysiwym program :P) helps the more visual type to write good LaTeX without
knowing about the nitty gritty details. (not sure if in Ubuntu .deb, but
it's available for Debian...) :)
If the source is already available in html form, `htmldoc` might be of
help to convert to pdf.
Feel the love
