Hiya

So i need to start using vi alot more as it will make my conf changes much much easier to ally plus i feel it would just be better for me to know this basic of the linux/unix tool set.

So i am wondering if there are any good tutorials out there fro VI, not a command guide but something that properly talks /walks you thought using vi in everyday linux/unix life.

Also, try running: vimtutor (in ubuntu/debian it's available in vim-runtime package, in fedora it's provided by vim-enhanced package).
