Talking Can't find the manuals! Offline

I am trying to find all the Red Hat 8 manuals. Offline.

If they were loaded on my HD during installation shouldn't they be in here:
/usr/share/doc/ ?

If they are not there does anyone know which of the five CDs they would be on and what is the name of the file I should look for?

How many CDs came with the original boxed set? I've got copies of five CDs
Maybe thats my problem.?

I know where to get them online, but I've got slow dial up....

well yes thats where they are supposed to be, but if they are not i will have to say they are on one of those cd's which i do not know where off hand, but i can narrow it down for you and say its not on cd 4 or 5, as they are the SRPMS discs.
actually i just mounted the iso's for my RH8 discs, and i noticed how when i did "ls |grep doc" on my disc 3 there was 9 results so i think the docs are spread out amongst the cd's judging by that..
