Cool Need help adding Man pages/command after not initially installing

Hi there,
I am a major Linux n00b. I have figured out how to install Slackware 10.2 for use as a Counter Strike Source server. I have tried to do a "lean" install. Unfortunately, I have somehow managed to install it without the "Man" command and Man pages. I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me the best way to get this onto the machine. If I missed something out on an original install of Free BSD, I would just use the "Sysinstall" command, but this does not work under other distos.
Please help, I know I am a n00b.

Thanks for your reply Freakyg.
How do I find out what the package name is? And also, do I need the CDrom in the drive, or can it be downloaded via FTP?
Thanks again,
