I have just recently switched from SCO Unix to Red Hat  and  the vi  works differently.  I have a .login file not an .exrc file.  How do I make it so that I don't have to "set nu"  everytime I open a file in order to have page  numbers in the file.  Thanks.

You have to put the configuration commands (set nu for instance) in the vimrc file which is in /usr/share/vim or something like that.
