EDIT: I forgot, if you want to do a range from the current cursor position you
can do it as '.,+x' where x is the number of lines after the one you're on.
e.g. ':.,+4s/^/# /' would comment out the line you're on and the four after it.
Also, you could use the program 'boxes' with the range if you want, e.g.
':.,+4!boxes -d shell'.
P.S. Sorry for double posting, I should think longer before I send to avoid
forgetting stuff :P
