This is sounding like a "the best editor" question. I do all my file
modifications from a Terminal with "joe" a Word Star editor. This is the
"best editor" because I know how to use it :-)
Another is gedit. This can be started from a Terminal but is a very
nice GUI editor. But to have this editor you should load the standard
Gnome on x-windows system. If I was living with Samba server I would use
this. When your done setting up just drop back to the init level you
want to operate in.
