Sometimes a manpage is good.  Sometimes /usr/share/doc/<foo>.
Sometimes install foo-doc package to get the documentation.  google
can help a lot.  linuxdoc.org has lots of howtos.

If you can't find the F{ine} Manual for a given piece of software or
task then just ask.  It usually helps to mention where you have
already looked too.
