I guess that the elisp sources are not installed. What is your system ?
On debian, the sources are in a separate package called emacs.el.

Try to locate files ending with .el or .el.gz. on your system.
(e.g. by typing M-x locate misc.el in emacs)
If you only find files ending with .elc (sources are compiled), 
that explains why you can't access them through the *help* buffer.
