Older MCNP5 Manual:
The manual was corrected and updated (as of Nov. 2005) to include the new features found in MCNP Version 5 (MCNP5)- RSICC_1.40. The manual was also split into 3 volumes:

Volume I:       MCNP Overview and Theory       Chapters 1, 2 and Appendices G,H
Volume I(LA-UR-03-1987) provides an overview of the capabilities of MCNP5 and a detailed discussion of the theoretical basis for the code. The first chapter provides introductory information about MCNP5. The second chapter describes the mathematics, data, physics, and Monte Carlo simulation techniques which form the basis for MCNP5. This discussion is not meant to be exhaustive - details of some techniques and of the Monte Carlo method itself are covered by references to the literature.

Volume II(LA-CP-03-0245) provides detailed specifications for MCNP5 input and options, numerous example problems, and a discussion of the output generated by MCNP5. The first chapter is a primer on basic MCNP5 use. The third chapter shows the user how to prepare input for the code. The fourth chapter contains several examples, and the fifth chapter explains the output. The appendices provide information on the available data libraries for MCNP, the format for several input/output files, and plotting the geometry, tallies, and cross-sections. The manual is provided in the MCNP6 release package available from RSICC, and is NOT accessible from this webpage or the MCNP Reference Collection.

Volume III:      MCNP Developer's Guide       Appendices C, D, E, F
Volume III(LA-CP-03-0284) provides details on how to install MCNP on various computer systems, how to modify the code, the meaning of some of the code variables, and data layouts for certain arrays.
