Tried nano?? Can't get much easier than that...

Failing that::

$ vim /etc/network/interfaces
(scroll to postion for insertion/deletion)
(press 'x' to delete current character, press 'i' to start inserting
characters from current position, then press 'Esc' to leave insert mode)

When finished: 
(Press Esc to exit insert mode if in insert mode)
(Type ":" to enter command mode)
(type "wq" and press enter)

Done :P

Following a major blunder on my part I had to purchase a new hard disk.
Rebuilt a system using Debian Sarge no problems here except I have been
to establish an internet connection - the connection is via Cable.

I am after infomation on how to run the edit program  Vim  so I can edit the
interfaces file  -  Sylpheed is the editor I would have used but it was not

Your assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you
