Assuming you get your hard drive situation fixed up, you shouldn't need anything else to run vi(1). It's installed by default in /usr/bin, so my guess is that if you get your /usr partition available to the system, you'll be fine. If all you've got available is /, then I feel your pain, for ed(1) and red(1) are somewhat "like kicking dead whales down the beach" compared to something more modern... :-) Like someone else wrote, send us the output of "mount" and a description of how you're attempting to mount your filesystems, the relevant parts of your dmesg, etc. Kevin Kinsey DaleCo, S.P. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
