Install pinfo, it provides a hyperlink-like browsing through the colored keywords of manpages.
You also should be aware every package has documents in /usr/share/doc/(packagename) where the README usually contains more detailed descriptions.
If you install debian packages you can scroll over sections about compiling and installing, and jump directly to the usage descriptions.
Many good tutorials are also on http://www.tldp.org
