Thanks. It didn't quite work for me as I hoped. The purpose was to have it on a flash jump drive that I could have for quickly editing files, if needed, at school - which is primarily Windows based. I got it on there, but it didn't really work 100% - it likes a static setup (ie, a Desktop) and not a portable one better. Plus, nvi didn't stand alone - it required the ksh to run. If I had a Windows setup here that I used all the time, that would be a different story.
So, I'll just use elvis that did install and work from the jump drive. It's primarily only for emergencies when I need a text editor and not for regular usage, so I'll deal with it.
But, thanks anyway - great link!
