The (5) specifies the section inside the manual pages - just a convention. For 
some pages with the same name are pages in different sections available. If 
there is just one entry, the section can be disregared. You could also get the 
page with:

man 5 sched_conf

But you wouldn't find anything about sched_conf in the other sections. The 
sections are e.g. listed here:

IIRC it was explained in one of the LPI 101 documents, I apologize if I mixed 
it up with some other tutorials I had in mind. Anyway: using a nice value 0 to 
19 is the suitable range for user processes. Below zero is reserved for system
