Vi Editor

I'm getting ready to install Crux Linux and during installation there is a time I need to configure some files using Vi, which I dislike with a passion, anyway, while I have a file open using Vi, I can't save the file because it say it is in Read-Only mode.

How do I change it to Read-Write mode? I'm also Root user while during this.
