Its probably because you dont have the english version of the man pages.
As i know, man too checks for the environment to see what man pages to use. Look for the version in english.

But i have a question to you. Havent you had any problems with RedHat 7? I have been upgrading from rpms and got a lot of them.
Before, i could see japanese directories and files listed on kterm and rxvt. Now i can only see them if my environment variables are set to english.
Also Netscape behaves wrong when i try to save something, again, only if i have the japanese environment variables set. Like LANG=ja_JP and LC_ALL=ja_JP.
Sylpheed also crashes every now and then when i try to start it. It never crashed before. Of course, i havent installed all rpms yet, because i get them from modem.

bye bye
