    In the help for Multisite, My Sites.Settings, click on the provided link:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Network_Admin_Settings_Screen

    Under Menu Settings, it says
    ...

    1. Click on System Admin > Options 2. Select Enable administration menus for Plugins 3. Click Save Changes

    I cannot find any menu item labled "System Admin" or "Options".

    Is this doc obsolete for 3.8? Where is this function in 3.8?

    That entry is old. The 'Enable administration menus' option is inside the network setting that the page is referring to. It is the very last option.

    Network Admin -> Settings -> Network Settings

    I'm trying to enable plugins on member sites. I checked the "Pludins" box, but member site admins cannot install site-specific plugins. So, it looks like the documentation is both out of date and wrong.

    I do not believe that site admin have the ability to install plugins. The documentation does not say that either. It states 'This means your users won’t have access to the plugin admin panel inside their dashboard unless you first enable access to plugins network wide.'

    Once the plugins are installed by a super (network) admin, the super admin can allow site admins to enable/disable plugins. When plugins are "network activated", the plugin is active and a site admin cannot de-active.

    Hope that clears up your understanding of plugin management.

    Correct. NETWORK admin can install plugins.
