Vim substitute in Slax 6.1.2


At home I'm usually a slackware user but this weekend I have taken a trip to my parents' house and brought along Slax on a CD. I am running Slax on a laptop that is not connected to the net, so can't download any modules and have found that when I come to use Vim it is not installed!!! Could someone tell me what I can use in its place on the standard Slax setup?

I have googled and done a search of the forums BTW.

Have you checked to see if just vi is available?
