I tried some unix system program in Ubuntu 9.04(Which I installed using a CD). When I tried man mq_open, it says man page is not installed. I dont have Internet connectivity to my laptop.I have Ubuntu 9.04 cd with me. I want to know how could I install that man page manually.

man pages are usually installed along with the package manager.
You can try running

sudo mandb

but other than that, it's likely no documentation was provided.

You can get the .deb file for manpages and manpages-dev from here...

http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/doc/

Download it to your internet connected computer and transfer it to your laptop. Either add it to your apt source list or just right-click and use Gdebi installer.
