You may need to load the module for the second NIC. But if hotplug has added the NIC then you might also try "ifconfig -a" to list all the adapters to see if it is even there. If it is there then proceed to configure it. If not then you will need to load the correct module. Use "modprobe module name" If you post the NIC card specs perhaps someone will know what module is required.

I don't know anything about Redhat but in Slack the customary "vi" is a symlink that is normally defaulted to elvis. It can be changed to whatever you prefer. You can use "whereis vi" to locate the symlink and then do a long listing to determine what it is presently set to. I know Slack 8.1 included vim, so I would think that 9.0 does as well. Probably same directory, /usr/bin if I recall. Other than that, it might be a console setting in the profile for vim (elvis). Also, you might check the manpage "man vim" to see about the config files that are possible.
