Wrong forum for the sort of comments we're seeing here (I know, I know...) but if you're "just looking to edit a few config files" beware of pico. It does strange things will long lines, which is not entirely surprising when its major function is to compose email messages. What *will* be surprising is the havoc you can wreak by having your system configuration files broken in all the wrong places!!

Just learn vi. Then learn vim. Life in your terminal will be much better.
