 Do you have the Solaris 2.6 x86 CD?  I guess you must.  Unfortunately I don't, so I'm going a bit blind here, but try these ...

 - see if your CD has some sort of 'setup' program so that you can add or remove installable items.  One of the items should be the 'man pages'.
 - browse the CD and locate the man pages.  If they are in some sort of package format (pkg) then use the pkgadd command to install them.  Use man pkgadd for more information, but essentially, if you can find a directory on the CD called (say) packages, and in there is something like man.pkg then you should be able to do this,

  pkgadd -d /cdrom/packages  (replace this with the full path to the dir)

  and you will then be prompted for the package you want to install.  Find the number for the man pages and select it.

 - Failing these, see if the man pages are on the system in a normal form - then just tar the directory up, and untar it on your system.
