So you have Emacs 21.x (please always say in the future what version
you are using), where you should type "C-h C-f COMMAND RET" instead.

If the manual is missing, then "C-h C-f" will not work, but I suggest
to try that anyway, in case the manual is hiding in some place where
only Emacs can find it.
