a MANPATH problem


when Xman comes up, it does not see my MANPATH variable (so it seems)
and can only display the pages located in /usr/man.

/home/dmallery>echo $MANPATH

also, i have this problem when running emacs on an xterm in SU:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
emacs: Cannot connect to X server :0.0.
Check the DISPLAY environment variable or use `-d'.
Also use the `xhost' program to verify that it is set to permit
connections from your machine.
/home/dmallery>>echo $DISPLAY
 needless to say, emacs works perfectly from my /home account

i apologize for the rank odor of newbie, but i am overwhelmed by
the vast assortment of new toys in X.
