Question Command difference??

What is the Debian/Knoppix equivalent to:


I'm trying to edit my /etc/fstab , but the writer of the article I'm using to guide me apparently used this command on a Fedora distro. It doesn't work on knoppix!

root@ttyp0[knoppix]# gedit /etc/fstab
bash: gedit: command not found

Pretty sure knoppix has kedit. So you can try:
kedit /etc/fstab

gedit is just a text editor, you should be able to use vi or pico.
