Add "syntax on" to your ~/.vimrc, it should use color based on file ext.,
I think. Also try vim -g or gvim, that gives even more features.
The tab->enter thing is called autoindent or cindent.
To zoom to a line, use ^G I think, or (my method, since I learned on ex)

I was able to install several apps (also no win95 partition), but they
didn't run (trying to find an AVI player that can do more recent than
v3.5... Found three for win95, none worked. One for dos, which brought
me my first hard crash in months (dosemu+graphics+matrox=bad)).
I know nothing about netscape mail. Pine isn't even powerful enough for
me these days. 4.05 is segfaulting and taking a long time to start. I
hate being addicted to these key bindings (mutt's default pine bindings
are for some reason not even close.)
