And dragorn has chosen a very logical way of accessing the online help, so even without the information from the splashscreen, you don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out how you get the online help to display.

You mean like the Documentation link up at the top of this web page where if you look you'll see?

10. Ncurses/Panels Interface

The ncurses/panels interface is the default frontend provided with Kismet.

The panels interface is fairly intuitive, and has integrated help.
'h' will open the main help window showing all the options available.

Yeah, I could see how that would be really easy to miss. Then again -m is missing from the Documentation link so I see your problem.
