There's just mainly one sed command that i've needed in order to fix enough to 
get the network up.

sed -i -e 's/oldstring/newstring/'  filename

That's generally been enough to get me through say bad IP addresses or gateway 
settings.

The ed command works fine, but you need to understand how to use it.  It's ... 
different.

I frequently use sed, but if you're at the point where the root file system is 
mounted, you should be able to use the terminal server access.  This allows you 
to SSH to the terminal server, then connect to the target system and use the 
normal vi/vim editors.
