I don't think RedHat comes with pico anymore because its been replaced by nano. mcedit is on one of those redhat cds or you can download it from here.

Pico is considered by some to be "questionably not-quite-opensource". Nano is the replacement that is VERY close to pico. However, if you'd still like pico, install pine and pico will follow.

Cool

If you can find the PINE package on the red hat 8 cd, Pico is included with that.

Pico is my fave text editor so I made sure to manually select PINE when I installed Red Hat 9.
