no you will not learn anything if you just reinstll all the time - plus it is very time comsuming not to mention boring.
delete other modules.conf by:

first copy the file to a safe place:

cp filename /home/you/yourplace

rm -rf nameof_bogus_files [make sure you leave the original]

~EDITING
are you using the correct vi commands -
1) open the file = vi filename
2) press i for insert mode
3) paste info
4) press w to save the changes
5) press q to close the file

it is really worth creating a bunch of text documents sometime to fool around editing them with vi - just to get used to it.
