Text Editor on Fedora Core 4 in Text Mode


I have a server with Fedora Core 4 Installed.

I need to edit the httpd.conf file for apache but I don't have a windows system installed.

Is there a text editor avalible for Fedora Core 4 which will allow me to edit it, or are there other ways to do it.

FC4 should have vi installed.

Have a look at

http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/vimcheat.html

for the commands

Note that if you are insert mode, hit Esc to get the vi command line

There also may be nano or pico (friendlier than vim)

My FC5 has nano....
