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.
