I'm not sure that there is.

If you want the pages on your own computer though, you can do something
like this...

open a terminal

mkdir manuals
cd manuals
wget http://www.centos.org/docs/4/

which will download the entire set of html pages on to your computer in
the 'manuals' directory which you can then use firefox -

'File' menu => 'Open file...' 

then navigate to your manuals directory and choose 'index.html' and open

If you want PDF form, you could get that from 'upstream' provider...
