Do you have the man page files? Normally called programName.1 or something like that... If you do have the files you just need to copy them to the relevant man page dir. something like /usr/local/man/manX where X is substituted for the number on the end of the man file (in this example 1).
I bought an Acer Aspire One with Linpus preinstalled and it lacks the man pages for the installed applications. I do not have the man files, how can I install them? (I suppose I could remove and reinstall the packages, but is there a better way?)
