I just ran dispatch-conf as suggested. I always get confused here. Most of the time, I'll find a way to write out both files and then vimdiff them. I'd like to use vimdiff, but because of some reason, vimdiff can't be used instead according to the gentoo handbook. All I want to do is append the lines from the new file to the existing one.
