How to get man pages in Grafpup?


Hi folks,

I installed Grafpup2.00 on a friends PC harddrive.
He wants to learn Linux and I believe that the "man" command is important for that. Also many base shell tools lack any usage info as man pages.
How can I install a "man" system on his machine?

By far the easiest way to give you friend access to the man pages would be to use google.com/linux. Simply type the man command into google.com/linux

Is there a package that can be installed to get man pages for the default applications in Grafpup?
I am unable to get the broadband working on his machine though I have been able to do that on mine.
