"$ vi /.profile" not working properly
 
  1. I hope that that this is the correct forum.
  2. I've described the problem at my blog.
  3. If this isn't the correct way to pose questions, then I apologize.

You're trying to access the .profile file in your root directory (/). That's not where it resides. .profile is under your own home directory, so use:
Code:

vi ~/.profile
where ~ signifies your own home directory. You can also just use:
Code:

vi .profile
since you're already in your home directory.
