I installed CentOS 6.3 Minimal on VMWare Player, and I realized how 'minimal' the setup is...

Don't have network connectivity. From what I searched on google, I need to edit the file


but since I don't have any editor installed (as far as I know), I don't know how to edit the file.

How do I edit the file????

vi should be installed. Since vi is the POSIX standard editor, it is unlikely that you will find yourself on a Unix or Linux machine without it. – jordanm Nov 10 '12 at 17:10

From CentOS 6.3 release notes for the minimal install, vi is available.
