Threaderslash, if you did not install the man*.tgz fileset when you installed OpenBSD, you can add it to your system now by following the instructions in FAQ 4.11. In addition, every one of the mirrors of the OpenBSD project website have a link to web based manuals, where you can even compare different versions of individual man pages from release to release.

"afterboot" man page (i.e. after you exit the mail subsystem, type
"man afterboot"). If you are not familiar with how to read man pages, type
"man man" at a shell prompt and read the entire thing. Pay specific
attention to the "man -k keyword" option, which will permit you to find the
man page you are looking for more easily; for instance, "man -k ethernet"....

Again, PLEASE READ THE MANUAL PAGES. Our developers have spent countless
hours improving them so that they are clear and precise.
And, from afterboot(8):
     Administrators will rapidly become more familiar with OpenBSD if they get
     used to using the high quality manual pages.
