What editor did you use? If it was vi, it is a little quirky. Goto a line
BEFORE were you want to insert your text, then hit "A". This will put you at
the end of the current line in insert mode. Hit return and type in the text
that you want. Then hit escape to go back into command mode. Then type
":wq", to write the file and quite.

While you are in command mode, you can use "x" to delete text, "dd" to
delete a line. Typing "i" in command mode puts you in edit mode. Anything
you type will start at the current cursor position.

If you didn't use vi, then I just wasted everyone's time. :-)

Good luck,
Kory

  I followed the steps of configuring the network. And when I got to where I
had to edit the file /etc/rc.conf. I put the command in and nothing showed
up in the editor. What should I do?
