vim: startup at last cursor position


Guys, I need to figure out how to get vim to start at the last cursor edit position when opening a file previously edited.
In the past my all vim installations have already been set to do that automatically when I invoke the editor, but the current one doesn't.
I've tried the help docs and google, but can't figure it out.
My .vimrc is:

Code:
if &term =~ "xterm"
        if has("terminfo")
       set t_Co=8
       set t_Sf=[3%p1%dm
       set t_Sb=[4%p1%dm
   else
       set t_Co=8
       set t_Sf=[3%dm
       set t_Sb=[4%dm
   endif
endif

syntax enable
colorscheme delek
set showmatch
set noautoindent
set tabstop=4
set shiftwidth=4
set softtabstop=4
set ruler
and I do have a .viminfo file that looks ok (I think), but vim doesn't seem to use the info from it to do the above.
If it's any help, this is on Solaris 10 using ksh.
This is a desktop installation, so I do have root access if needed.

Code:
:set history=100
? Else force another .viminfo file with "-i" and see if it does add history lines? Your Vi isnt aliased to use another viminfo file or compiled w/o viminfo usage, right?

Like I said, .viminfo has lots of info in it, vim just doesn't start where i left off.
Tried your suggestion (in .vimrc), no effect.
How do I "force another .viminfo file with "-i" ?
I've no idea how it was compiled...
