    Hmm, "ee" isn't easy?

    Use the arrow keys to move around. Type the text where desired.
    Probably "backspace" and "delete" work well, too.

    First off, welcome to the wonderful world of CLI. Don't get frustrated
    -- it takes some getting used to.

    In ee, you should see helpful lists of commands at the top, followed by
    the file's contents. Most of the commands begin with "^", which
    represents the control button on your keyboard. For example, to delete
    a character, you would press the control button and the "d" key at the
    same time. (You may find that the delete and backspace keys work fine
    on your keyboard, however; so you won't need some of the commands.)

    It might also be helpful to open ee's man page on a different terminal.
    If you hit Alt-F2, you should find yourself at a new terminal. Alt-F1
    will bring you back to your original terminal. This allows you to run
    multiple programs in the foreground. You can go to Alt-F2 and execute
    'man ee' for doentation on ee while you have ee running with an open
    file at Alt-F1. Then, you can switch back and forth as needed.

    Have you tried moving up and down the doent using the keys for Page
    Up, Page Down or arrow keys?

    If ee can't find the file you're editing, it will open a new, empty file
    with the name you specified. If you don't see any contents in the
    file, ee may think you're starting a new doent. Make sure you were
    root when you executed 'Xorg -configure'. Also make sure the current
    working directory is /root so that ee can find xorg.conf.new easily.

    Best of luck,

    You may find 'pico' more intuitive:

    cd /usr/ports/editors/pico

    make install

    I will suggest different way just type:

    xorgcfg -textmode

    In this way you will avoid editors ;)
