I get following message:

E325: ATTENTION
Found a swap file by the name ".server.xml.swp"
owned by: root dated: Fri Feb 7 15:19:58 2003
file name: /usr/local/tomcat/conf/server.xml
modified: YES
user name: root host name: susannem
process ID: 3226
While opening file "server.xml"
dated: Fri Jan 11 00:23:30 2002

(1) Another program may be editing the same file.
If this is the case, be careful not to end up with two
different instances of the same file when making changes.
Quit, or continue with caution.

(2) An edit session for this file crashed.
If this is the case, use ":recover" or "vim -r server.xml"
to recover the changes (see ":help recovery").
If you did this already, delete the swap file ".server.xml.swp"
to avoid this message.

Swap file ".server.xml.swp" already exists!
[O]pen Read-Only, (E)dit anyway, (R)ecover, (Q)uit, (D)elete it:


All I want is to finish without saving. How can I do that?
