Hi Bill,

For this kind of thing, you can use locate, which locates a file on your
hard drive by name:

   $ locate wget. | grep man

If you're on a debian system, you can use dpkg to figure out if you have an
official Debian package of wget installed, which provides the man page.

If you're still stuck, email me offlist and I'll send you an rpm tutorial
that I wrote awhile back.

Let me know if this helps...
