In mulinux you have already an embrional form of manpages: type "man",
when X11 or GCC is mounted. They are simple text.

Maybe we can put in a single addons:

                1) UNIX man pages
                2) HOWTO's
                3) lpg (Linux Programmin Guide)
                4) Linux Administration Guide
                5) Kernel Guide
                6) Module programming

I've all that in my harddisk.
I think a good solution should be to transform all this text in
a form suitable for web browser: in this case, user can browse docs
concacting the internal web server.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
