Various ways of reading man pages, documentation
  man pagename
  vim, :Man pagename
  emacs, M-x man
  konqueror, man:pagename
  info pagename
  pinfo pagename
  install dwww, and go to http://localhost/dwww/ in any browser
  install man2html and enter the address http://localhost/cgi-bin/man/man2html
    in any web browser.

and finally dont forget google :-)

My favorites so far has been konqueror, dwww YMMV. Please let me know if I 
have missed anything...
