vi is not too difficult.
from the commandline prompt, type ;
then press the small letter "i" to allow u to insert text.
use the arrow keys to navigate to an empty line and add the text u need.
then press ESC.
:wq and hit enter.
from the commandline use cat to see if the changes u made hv been recorded and then try to reboot.
