    Which editor did you use (just out of curiosity)?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    When doing this kind of stuff, I usually su then use mc (midnight commander) to locate the file and edit it. I used windows commander on my windows machines and I think mc is very simple for new users.

    It's the only one you need.

    It's also a great word processor, since you can do things based on words, sentences and paragraphs, too (though not many people seem to know that!). Its only downside is that it doesn't cope with binary files, but since they're not text, and it's a text editor, that's not a great limitation. (I don't know if vim has binary file editing capability yet.)
