Hello Laurie.

Super quick and dirty basics:

vim <filename>

esc then i gets you into insert mode (where you can also erase / edit 
esc then Z and again Z saves your edits and exits to your shell prompt

Online help is    :help
Quit without saving changes is      :q

Try   http://larc.ee.nthu.edu.tw/~cthuang/vim/files/vim-intro.html   for 
less basic-basics :-)
